 /><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.

Wrap around Bridge

By resoamp from Beechworth Australia
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, September 01, 2011

The direct coupling and minimum of mechanical interference produces the wrap around sound...primal! This one has some token intonation adjustments available. Rudimentary. Probably better for non-offset bridge installation, as the stings can slide into the adjustment slide gaps when installed on an angle. It works though.

My LP Junior has one, screwed down to the deck, it's exactly the right height, action wise. And it's intonated correctly.Basic, but that's why you put them on anyway.

Great value

Almost bought a pigtail for the fine tuning (intonation) on individual strings but am very happy that I went with the Gotoh. Solid components, installation was a breeze.

Clean and simple bridge

The Wilkinson is a simple and elegant solution for a wrap bridge/TP. It also has a lower profile than some other brands - so it works well for guitars that have a smaller neck angle.

Stud threads are metric - so get replacement studs with US threads from another brand if retrofitting a vintage instrument.

Great bridge.

Very nice quality. Easy drop-in replacement for Gibson Melody Maker. Keeps the vintage look, and intonates well.
