Adjustable Wraparound Bridge

About This Item

A modern reproduction of the first combo bridge/tailpiece to feature individually adjustable saddles.

The wraparound design brought accurate intonation to Les Paul Junior®, SG Junior® and similar solidbody guitars, and has been popular since the 1970s.

String spread
Saddle radius
Stud spacing
Stud threads
M8 x 1.25mm

Two alignment screws adjust the overall intonation. The height-adjustable mounting studs include knurled bushings. The strings load from the front of the die-cast base, wrap over the back of the bridge, and over the notched saddles. Drill 7/16" (11mm) holes for the bushings.

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.

Decent bridge, would be vastly better with locking posts, don't blindly trust the dimensions shown

(Customer's Reviews)

Installed this bridge on a new build I'm working on. Did a few test runs to refine my template and found that the 11 mm bit suggestion in the ad is too small for hard woods (like maple). Probably fine for mahogany or poplar, but I was smacking it way too hard to cram it into the 11 mm hole in my scrap piece of maple. Went to an 11.5 mm bit, and it went perfectly.

I plan to fit a piece of maple in the receiver slot to maximize the vibration coupling to the guitar since setting it up against an adjustment screw seems chincy to me from that standpoint. A locking post would fix that right up, along with the slight bit of play I read another reviewer took issue with.

When planning your neck break angle, don't forget about the additional height of the top of the anchor (shown as .060") and the bottom of the post (not shown here at all). If memory serves, together these 2 offset the base of the bridge by a little less than 0.15", making your actual bridge height closer to 0.8". Either counter-sink the anchor, or account for it in your break angle. Using the 0.65" bridge height as shown will lead you astray if you're not careful.


Solid bridge, very tall though

(Customer's Reviews)

Bridge was way too tall for my Epiphone Les Paul Special. I couldn't get the action low enough because the saddles on this bridge sit very high. However, it's a pretty solid, well-made bridge so I may try to use it on a future project. Just didn't work for what I wanted it to.


Installed on an Epiphone LP Junior

(Customer's Reviews)

I installed this bridge on an Epiphone LP Junior. It was a huge upgrade from the cheap stock wraparound bridge. It was an immediate upgrade in stability and now I can adjust the intonation.


This bridge is truely a direct replacement. 

(Customer's Reviews)

I am glad that I bought this bridge because it was so easy to install onto my Epiphone Les Paul Special guitar.


Could be better

(Customer's Reviews)

I just received this bridge and the first thing I noticed is that there is play where it sits in the posts.The will result in the bridge being tilted slightly from the string pull. Although this likely won't affect how it works it could be a little tighter.
I'm not sure the saddles are brass as someone else stated. Doesn't say that anywhere in the discription. Would be nice if they are.

Potential trouble for PRS, Zero Stars

(Customer's Reviews)

I bought this to replace a PRS stoptail bridge on a PRS SE Custom. Although I researched and was advised that this "should be" a simple swap out, it has turned into a big hassle. The issue is NOT Stewart-MacDonald support. They have been great. The issue is that the specifications for the bridge are requiring a major rework of the product. The threaded studs had to be cut and the bottom lip required machining because they were bottoming out and pulling the bridge up. Also, the width of the female portion of the bridge stud is smaller than the corresponding PRS pieces. In short, I would advise thorough measurements for whatever brand guitar you will use this unit on. The quality of the construction, however, is excellent. It is simply not a swap out for SE Custom PRS guitars.



(Customer's Reviews)

It's a really good bridge. I put it on my Epi Les Paul Special II (EGS1WCNH3), and I barely had to adjust anything.


A very cool & versatile way out for many guitars

(Customer's Reviews)

I have only recently received my order for these bridges and must say I am impressed with the quality of machining & finish. Very versatile for different tops. Reasonably priced and will order them again. A great product.


Only so-so

(Customer's Reviews)

I bought this for a LP Jr. kit project, and the quality is decent considering the price. I've never had the "original" product that this is based on so I can't say if it's the same or not, but on this kit, at least, I had to modify the inserts and posts to make the bridge sit low enough on the body to get a reasonable 12th fret clearance. I recessed the insert flanges flush with the body and turned about .04" off the bottom flange of the posts to make them screw in a little further. With everything down tight it was playable but not ideal. Thinking of grinding down the saddles now. Could have been the neck angle was not to spec, but on this particular brand of kit everything else has been spot on, so I don't know. Just a heads up for others who might be thinking of using the item, be sure you check the neck angle clearance.


a great alternative to the PRS SE bridge

(Customer's Reviews)

I got one of these off of a friend who got it from stew mac for my PRS SE Tremonti. The PRS bridge is OK, but you are very limited on doing a setup on intonation. This bridge is similar to the old ones by Badass. It does the job. I recommend it for almost any stopbar style guitar without an adjustable bridge.
