Schaller Roller Bridge

About This Item

Schaller's unique variation of the Tune-o-matic bridge features low-friction roller saddles for smoother tuning and tremolo action.

These intonation-adjustable brass saddles allow adjustable string spread, and are angled slightly for correct alignment with the offset mounting studs and threaded bushings. The bridge can be used with standard Gibson® guitar tailpieces.

Use a 1/4" drill bit to install 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.

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

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!

This bridge is the bomb. Problems with intonation and string alignment are things of the past for me now. If you have an Epiphone, check the other reviews for installation as it's not just a drop-in replacement. The mounting bushing needs to be inserted in the existing bushing. I routed mine out with a Dremel, but apparently others just tapped it straight in with a nylon mallet.

Nice piece

Does the job super well But the height adjusters that came on my Gibson ES-339 can't spin freely (and can't be replaced by the Schaller ones that came with the bridge due to Gibosn's peg design) and so getting the action just right is a but of a hassle. I'm willing to put up with it, but if they machined a little more room in the bottom of the bridge then it would work perfectly.

This is the perfect bridge replacement for a Tune-O-Matic. This is the roller bridge that fits the Nashville style studs without modification. If you put a Bigsby on your Les Paul, use this bridge. Also, if you use the Vibramate, you can use a B-5 Bigsby and this bridge, and you're good to go. Also don't forget the Nut Sauce for the nut. You'll be wangin' and twangin' in no time.
