Not a huge fan of this item

(Customer's Reviews)

I am giving this three stars mainly because it's a good value for the quality of construction. Finish is nice, and it's fairly heavy.

Unfortunately, the design has some issues. When you string it up, if you have an instance where a saddle is compensated quite a bit toward the back of the bridge, the screws interfere with the strings, especially the bigger strings. In some cases this even causes the saddle to lift up a little. I'm going to work around this by either getting shorter screws, or cutting off the ones it came with on certain strings. Next time I need a hardtail Fender-type bridge, I'll probably go thru-body.


Mostly Great!

For the price, it's a wonderful bridge. The one I ordered wasn't perfectly flat on the bottom, and it rocked a tad on the guitar top. I worked it with a sharpening stone for a lil bit, and now it sits nicely. So, there.
