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.

Excellent Bridge

This is the second Schaller Bridge/Tailpiece that I have bought. The workmanship is excellent! I did not have to install the dowels to mount the bridge, they fit perfectly. The latest bridge was installed on a Gibson Melody Maker Explorer. It made all the difference in the world. The ability to adjust the intonation for each individual string is invaluable.

The title says it all, could not find any faults with this product. And combined with extremely fast postage to Australia, couldn't be happier

Needed a Bridge/Tailpiece with a slightly longer adjustment reach on the saddles and having tried a few of the other types (which are ok but didn't live up to my standards) this one is perfect as well as being an extreemly well crafted item from a very reliable brand

Schaller bridge/tailpiece

A great product with mass that contributes to fabulous sustain. But it's also a bulky item that can impact the look of your instrument... But what it lacks in finesse is well rewarded with tone.

Quality Design and Build

This Schaller bridge is a functional work of art! Everything about this bridge exudes quality; from the precision adjustment of the studs and notched, brass saddles; to how the strings are top loaded and then wrapped around a detachable bar, protecting my axes finish during string changes. Even though Schaller includes mounting studs, I have upgrade to the Tone Pros locking studs and find that the sustain and clarity of my guitar is phenomenal. I have looked at other bridges, namely the Schroeder which in my opinion is an inferior product with swank style. The Schaller's appearance is first class and therefore made the final cut (see photo).

i have been a woodworker for more than 35 years and i have started to learn ( slowly) playing the guitar and am simply drawn to look at guitar as fine art and combinded woodworking with guitar making and loving every minuit. my next to last guitar i made i used a schaller bridge/tailpiece that not only works well but looks great. after over a year one of bridge screws came loose.stewmac sent me another one the same day at no cost to me. i am very pleased with both prouduct and service l. m foster

Schaller Bridge / Tailpiece

Purchased this for an upgrade to a Les Paul Jr. that had the factory bridge and intonation issues. This unit is solid. It's easy to adjust. The guitar is now capable (for the first time) of really being in tune the full range of the neck. The unit looks great. For an LP Jr., you won't be able to use the included splined inserts but the threaded studs that come with the bridge have the same thread pattern as the originals. Just leave the original inserts in the guitar. You can replace the bridge in about 1 additional minute when you replace strings. The ability to set overall spacing of the bridge is great. Really nice plating job and craftsmanship.
