VERY Nicely Made Ebony Bridge!

When customizing my Aria FA-71, one of the mods I made was swapping out the oem rosewood bridge for this ebony bridge. The feet on this required a little sanding to get a perfect fit, but they were AMAZINGLY close to begin with. This bridge is VERY nicely made; the wood is of top-notch quality, the compensation is right-on, and a LOT of care went into the polishing of the wood. I'm used to doing these tiny kinds of tweaks myself to get the finish on things as perfect as possible, but other than sanding the bridge's feet a little to fit them perfectly to the unique arch of my guitar's soundboard, and making string grooves in the saddle once I determined where I wanted those grooves, there was no fine detailing left to do. Switching to this bridge gave the sound much more clarity, each note is now much more distinctly heard and doesn't tend to get buried in the sound of other notes. I'm curious how the rosewood version of this bridge would sound in comparison, so I'll probably have to try one of those to find out.

Great bridge

Intonation is spot on. Wood is nice and it will work for a 2 1/4 string spacing (just barely, but good to know if you need a wide spacing). Also, IMPORTANT positive, there's loads of room to remove material to help an old guitar with high action regain nice play-ability. I was able to take a 1/4 inch off the overall height. Nice bridge, worth the money

Great value

These bridges are very finely made and would grace even higher- end instruments. In fact, it will be the best thing showing on the old beater I ordered it for...

Just Like Old

This bridge was purchased for my ES125 project. I am a learning novice with guitar repair and not at all a luthier. I had bought the tune-o-matic bridge and like the fact that I can intonate it, however, this wood Archtop bridge gives my ES125 a more authentic sound. I intend on swapping bridges occasionally depending on what I am recording. It was hard to make the choice of the tune-o-matic or wood bridge, however if I bought this Archtop Bridge first, I would probably have not gone with the tune-o-matic. My advice is to go with this bridge if you want a sound more conducive to the original design of the instrument. I am not going for authentic restoration and imagine that those who are should go with the wood bridge.

Replacement bridge

This is not the first time I have use this bridge nor will it be the last.
As always this part will be the final touch to my rebuild of my 1962 Harmony

Nice Bridge

I'm reworking an old, wrecked Gretsch arch-top. The bridge worked perfectly with very little adjustment.

Harmony Happy, New Bridge

I just bought a 1966 Harmony Monterey Archtop off of Craigslist. It needed a new bridge. This guitar is SUPER CLEAN. I put the rosewood bridge on it. I had to sand the bottom down to make it work, but that was easy. This made the guitar come back to life. It is so much fun to play this guitar now. Great price, nice built bridge. Thanks StewMac you are the best. Thanks again SLICK

Good Bridge

Good tone and intonation. Use stick-it on the body of the archtop to match the shape of the top. Make sure you measure if you are retrofitting this bridge with other manufacturers components.

Worked well on 1963 Silvertone Jupiter

At a local antique shop I picked up a 1963 Silvertone Jupiter. The guitar was in remarkable condition but missing a few parts. The pots are 1/8" and there are about 8 of them and the guitar features a 13 way selector switch. Hard to find that baby. But the big problem, the bridge was gone and not a flat adjustable to be found. With a little sanding, this baby fit the guitar perfectly and looks like it came from 1963. Perfect repair, perfect part. Sales staff was very helpful determining if it would even work. It did!
