About bridge & tailpiece measurements

Bridge and Tailpiece reference image

String spread is the distance between the centers of the outer strings on a bridge or tailpiece.

Saddle radius determines the arc formed by all the individual saddle heights, and is similar to the measurement of a fretboard.

Stud/post spacing is the distance between the centers of the mounting posts of a bridge or 'stop' tailpiece.

Tip: Slotting Tune-o-matic style saddles
Nut slotting files work great for metal saddles. Choose your file size as you would when slotting a nut: use the same gauge as the string, or a few thousandths larger. After filing to the desired depth, we suggest polishing the slot with Mitchell's Abrasive Cord to remove file marks and burrs.

Nice Bridge

Very nice bridge. Underside says Gotoh and I'm not surprised. I've never been disappointed by any Gotoh parts.

I have used these Tune-O-Matic bridges on several of my custom guitars and I am always happy that I do. Not only are these bridges well made, but they are beautiful to boot. The adjuster screws turn smooth and the wood grain is always high quality with nice grain, giving any instrument a classy look. I will continue to use these bridges on my instruments.

Nice addition to my jazzbox

I really needed to do something with intonation on my Broadway and did not want to carve a new bridge. The tune-o-matic did the trick. I could not use the supplied base with the bridge, or rather I choose not to. After cutting the base down to have a reasonable action,it required so much trimming the two feet were pretty small square inch-wise. I just did not that much bridge pressure concentrated on two small areas. The bridge did fit on the stock base which comes in contact to the guitar's the width of the base. After I had the action to my liking, the intonation was easily set using my Peterson StroboClip. The bridge looks great and the guitar sounds and plays even better!
