 /><font color=About bridge & tailpiece measurements

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.

Improper specs not enough info

Watch the height! This was purchased for a 6120 and 1) studs won't fit the standard bridge base and 2) The bridge is limited in how low it will drop. It will not work with a Gretsch 6120 UNLESS you want to exclusively play slide guitar.

Buy this bridge! After replacing my tune-o-matic with the original Gibson part, I was still breaking strings at the bridge. Instead of taking it to the shop I liked the design of this bridge and the reviews were good so I decided to try it. It has improved both the resonance and feel way beyond what I expected. My Les Paul Custom is better than ever! Thanks Schaller and StewMac!

I have been using roller bridges on all my Bigsby equipped guitars for years. I have taken to using them on ALL my guitars that use a Tune-O-Matic bridge. I can adjust the spacing and intonate much easier with rollers !

Best  Upgrade for Gibson guitars.

My 2003 Les Paul resonates like never before with this Schaller bridge installed. I never realized the stock Nashville tune-o-matic was leeching the tone out of my guitar. Gibson would be smart to contract with Schaller to include this bridge on every factory guitar. It was such a great tonal improvement, I bought one for my SG too.

Spacing

Originally, I selected this bridge when I first started making guitars in case I flubbed on string alignment. Now I like the idea of custom spacing since not all player's fingers are created equal.

Nice bridge, I just put a Bigsby B7 on my Les Paul and this keeps it in tune well. Only bummer is this has 14" radius and my LP has a 12" radius. They should make one specifically for Gibsons.

Bridge over Troubled Waters

By Big Ron from Chattanooga, TN USA

I have installed several roller bridges over the years, and I prefer them on my Bigsby equipped guitars. Normally when I get a guitar without a tremolo, I install a Bigsby on it. Recently I purchased a Super Eagle custom jazz box from The Heritage company and it came with a Schaller Roller Bridge. I didn't know what the brand of the bridge was, but I thought it was just something that Heritage had made for them. After a bit of research starting here at the StewMac website, I found that it was a Schaller Roller Bridge. I immediately ordered another one for my Gretsch 6120-1959 and I have another couple of guitars just waiting to be converted. It's easy to install, even if you have to shorten the threaded shafts of a rosewood jazz box bridge base. Nothing to it, good looks, precision engineered and the shape of the bridge doesn't grind it'self into your hand.

Great Bridge!

I have been working on a project to "clean up" a 73 Gibson SG. Part of the project was installing a Bigsby tailpiece, which did not work very well with the original harmonica bridge on my SG. I was quite pleased with how well the Schaller Roller Bridge worked with the Bigsby, smooth and very responsive. Installation was a breeze. Very pleased with the item!
