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.

The final touch to make my Gretsch Country Gentleman as close to perfect as possible. Thanks for quick delivery. That catalog is so impressive that if I were younger I'd be tempted to get into the luthier business. Red Freeman, Little Rock, Arkansas

The bridge went on an older Epiphone Emperor Regent that came stock with a fixed wood bridge. Customer service was great and the fit of the new bridge was perfect in both string spacing and radius, and it allowed me to set the intonation. It also looks good. Unfortunately, just replacing the bridge dramatically altered the tone of the guitar so that it's not as bright and sounds less "acoustic" through an amp than it did before. The bridge also rattles and buzzes on several strings, which surprises me as I have a similar wired bridge on my Les Paul Deluxe that does not buzz at all. I'm 50/50 on switching back to the wooden fixed bridge.

Excellent replacement for Ibanez George Benson

I obtained this Tune-O-Matic bridge as a replacement for the original wood bridge to lower the action on my 1978 GB. With minor adjustments to the truss and intonation, it nicely accomplished that goal.

Archtop TOM

The bridge bass was decent quality. But wired ABR 1 bridges are just turds, the wire buzzes while playing, there is tons of play in the adjustable saddles, and they don't hold tune well. I would recommend stewmac make an archtop bridge with a Nashville style TOM, for the folks who would be bothered by this sort of thing.

I have purchased four of these, so I will write my review for all of them. Three were silver in finish and the last one was in gold.

I purchased these bridges to replace the wooden, compensated bridges on my archtop guitars. The gold one was for a Cort Larry Coryell signature guitar. The three silver colored ones were for various Kay guitars I have. So, these bridges have replaced compensated bridges on a Kay Swingmaster from about 1963, a Kay model K592 and a Kay model 1445. And the Cort Coryell.

These bridges have made the playability of these guitars excellent. Before the guitars seemed to be stiff, and the strings were hard to bend. These bridges were just the upgrade that all of these guitars needed.

I can't recommend these bridges more highly for upgrading guitars with wooden, compensated bridges. These truly are an upgrade.

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.
