I really needed to do something with intonation on my Broadway and did not want to carve a new bridge. The tune-o-matic did the trick. I could not use the supplied base with the bridge, or rather I choose not to. After cutting the base down to have a reasonable action,it required so much trimming the two feet were pretty small square inch-wise. I just did not that much bridge pressure concentrated on two small areas. The bridge did fit on the stock base which comes in contact to the guitar's the width of the base. After I had the action to my liking, the intonation was easily set using my Peterson StroboClip. The bridge looks great and the guitar sounds and plays even better!
puente colocado en mi epi joe pass, pequeño ajuste en la altura de la base de madera ,excelente afinacion y sustain.
Huge improvement to my Gretsch 5120. The factory bridge was awful. If you have an older one with the original bridge on it then you know of the dreaded rattle. The good news was that I was able to use the original wood piece which made the install way easier. I do wish it was a little more robust but it was cheep and it works... Vastly improved intonation.
tightened up and brightened sound on my Godin 5th ave. archtop w/single p90!
I bought two of these in gold..one for my Epi Joe Pass and the other for my Epi Emperor Regent.The main reason was because I put an ebony tailpiece on the Emperor(also from Stew) and it was the only way to ground the strings. But it also looks great and it makes for exact intonation. I wish Stew would have had an ebony base for them , but I stained them with the ebony fingerboard stain. My guitars look and sound beautiful thanks to Stew.
Quality product. Pleanty of room for sanding to fit my archtop hollow body.
I put this bridge on a gretsch 5120 for a friend. This item is much better than the bridge that came with the guitar. He had a rattelig noise from the old one. The noise is gone, the guitar has a better tone and my freind is happy. All at a pretty good price. What more can you ask for?
Fitted to Heritage H-575, Nice, bright and articulate.
I put this bridge on a 1968 Conrad guitar. All I can say is that it is Great. Thank you very much.
As usual a great product from Stewmac, used it on an Epiphone Emperor, my client took me on the road for a festival in México city, changed it in less than 30 minutes (the old bridge was way too damaged) a little filing on the 6th and 5th saddles and the guitar was ready to go! intonation adjustment improved and he played a great show!
