I was looking for a compensation replacement for a rosewood bridge

The item worked great a little wider than my old bridge, but actually that seemed to help transfer the sound. After installing it I did find a clearer sound coming from my guitar and the intonation was excellent. Good buy from my point. The reason I gave it four starts is the saddle needed a cleaning up of sharp edges on the bone, but the clean up was minimum. I would definitely buy this product again for a replacement bridge.

The bridge fit perfectly on my archtop guitar and allowed the proper adjustment on string height.

I bought it to replace the stock rosewood bridge on an Epiphone Joe Pass archtop. Perfect match up & sweet tone. More definition than a tune-o-matic Couldn't be happier.

Restored a 1953 Kay changing from the old wood saddle and bridge to the bone was amazing.
Much brighter punchy sound.

Vast tonal improvement

My 1990 Knight (London, UK) handmade archtop came from a US dealer with a pretty but poorly made rosewood bridge. The tone lacked clarity and the action was uneven. I finally got around to replacing it with this bridge and the difference is stunning! This guitar sounds as it is supposed to:
articulate and full. The bridge is very well made and looks great. The curve matches the fretboard radius exactly. It was very simple to replace the stock chrome adjusters and posts with gold ones from Stew-Mac, an inexpensive upgrade when looks are important. The Stew-Mac archtop bridge fitting jig is a must to ensure a perfect fit. Fitting the bridge was as easy as the Dan Erlewine video claims. I am totally sold on the bone saddle as well. Highly recommended.

amazing transformation

I have a '59 Harmony Monterey that was soft and timid of tone. Since the installation of this bridge it has such bell-like clarity and sustain that It has become my favorite guitar. I was able to get the strings so close to the neck that the action is now slinky and feather light.

Used this as a replacement bridge for a 1940's Kay Archtop. Worked beautifully, only having to file down the bottom of the saddle to lower the action. Thanks, Stewmac!
