Randy Wood Vintage-style Mandolin Bridge

About This Item

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.

The Randy Wood vintage bridge was a great upgrade for my mandolin

By

Verified Buyer


I have a Washburn 118SWK which after playing for a while 'out of the box' then put it into Donnie Barbra of Maryville TN to get a set-up, change tuners to 18-1 Grovers and fit this Randy Wood vintage style bridge. I have to say the overall improvement has gone from good to great! and as a 'hobby' player I'm more than pleased. The bridge looks nice and I believe it has improved the tone considerably. Well worth it. Stewmac were very prompt in despatch, very pleased.

Nice ebony bridge

This is a better quality and more dense ebony than the inexpensive bridge. However some might not be able to tell the difference in the listening to, it does provides a slightly darker tone.

Randy Wood mandolin bridge

This is truly a well made replica of the bridges and fits great. Of course, some grinding is needed to make sure if fits on the top. A recommended item and also great to have as a spare bridge.

mandolin bridge upgrade

I purchased the Randy Wood Vintage-style mandolin bridge to up grade the stock bridge on a morgan monroe rocky top mandolin. It added to the mandolin in sound and in balance across the strings. Execellent product.
