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.

Tip: Slotting Tune-o-matic style saddles
Nut slotting files work great for metal saddles. Simply use the same techniques you'd use for nut slotting (read more in Making a Nut, Step-by-Step). After filing to the desired depth, we suggest polishing the slot with Mitchell's Abrasive Cord to remove file marks and burrs.

Quality and service

I find myself time to time needing parts for my many custom projects. Stew-Mac has always been able to send what I need and when I need it. I can count on the quality and service every time!

Nashville Bridge

A great product for the price, I used it to replace the worn out bridge on my '78 LP custom and now the string spacing and radius is how I want it. It's very easy to notch the saddles for a custom spacing and now the battered old thing plays the best it ever has. Some of the tolerances are a bit wide; for example the post holes, but in practice this doesn't effect performance in any way.
Be aware though that this bridge has metric fittings so the height adjustment posts won't screw into US bushings if you're putting it on an American guitar. You'll either have to replace the US bushings with the supplied metric ones or, as I did, just drop the bridge onto the existing posts; it fitted with no problems and looks almost identical to the original (German-made!) bridge and I can replace the original bridge easily if I come to sell the guitar. The bridge arrived within three weeks of my order and no duty was levied, a bargain!
