First choice for the vintage Lloyd Loar look. Retrofit your F-5 with this fine quality ebony Lloyd Loar reproduction bridge.
From respected luthier Randy Wood, the vintage touches on this bridge include small 3/8" knurled thumbwheels for height adjustment, and the authentic 1921 patent date stamped on the bridge base. The compensated unslotted saddle is delicately machined like the old bridges, and the base is ready for fitting to your mandolin's top curvature. Minimum adjustable height is 7/8".
The height of the bridge studs can be adjusted from the bottom of the bridge with a 1/16" Allen wrench (not included). This handy modern feature helps keep the top of the studs safely below the top of the saddle after final fitting and trimming, and can help the saddle resist leaning under string tension.
