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.

LOVE the roller!

I bought a Schaller Roller Bridge for one of my guitars about a year ago. Since then, I've really come to admire the elegant simplicity of the unit as a whole and the way I can adjust it to accommodate my style of playing. So, when it was time to upgrade one of my "pet" guitars, I naturally went back to a Schaller. At the same time, I installed new 500K pots, a new tailpiece, new knobs and pickup rings. The change has made an "OK" guitar become absolutely stellar. I really appreciate it that Stew-Mac had everything I needed, and got it to me quickly and without a backorder. Now, I'm beginning to think my other guitars need some attention, because this one came out so wonderfully.

Vintage Hagstrom & Schaller

Replaced the original bridge on my 73 Hagstrom Swede which had seen it's better days. Had to modify the schaller a touch to widen the post holes a 64th but otherwise dropped right in on the original posts. (although I ended up putting the schaller posts in for ease of adjustability purposes ). Better intonation and string spacing adjustment and I'm no longer breaking E & B strings. Thumbs up.

Les Paul Custom Schaller roller bridge conversion

Hello Stewart Mc. I purchased this bridge because technically it looked superior to the standard "tune o matic" Upon receiving it I noticed it came along with it's own body inserts to which the bridge rests upon, Sorry but I wasn't about to dig out the original inserts just to mount this bridge on a $5k gibson. So instead,I thought about it for awhile and wondered if I was to drill out the bridge and have it just sit upon the original Gibson insert post. Well I did just that and set the spacing, string height, and intonation, and my custom plays like a million bucks,and have yet to break a string. You simply cannot go wrong for the price. many thanks

Great upgrade

I got this bridge to upgrade a standard tune-o-matic on an SG type kit guitar.I found the holes for the mounting studs just a fraction too narrow. A quick grind out with my Dremel quickly sorted that out.After stringing up I was pleasantly surprised to find that the intonation(apart from the A string,which was screwed in 1 turn) was spot on.A great product that with a graphite nut should help any guitar with a stable tuning platform. Highly recommended.

Spaced out

Great to have adjustable spacing when needed. Used it with a B5 on a 45yr old narrow-necked import. Works well and keeps in tune. Nice looking too!

Perfect Fit, Great Tuning Fix

I purchased this bridge to install on an Epiphone WildKat I just purchased. Knowing that the Bigsby tremolo would cause the guitar tuning to wander, I figured this was the best solution.

Installing the bridge was very easy. First remove the strings, stock bridge and stock height adjustment screws. Insert the straight knurled Schaller bushings into the threaded stock bushings far enough to be able to judge if they are square (perpendicular) to the face of the stock bushing. Using a feeler gauge set is the simple way to accomplish this. Using care and a nylon faced mallet, tap the Schaller bushings down into the stock bushings until they seat completely. Install the Schaller height adjustment screws and the bridge fits perfectly! Now you're ready to set up your intonation and action.

Thanks to Stewart-MacDonald for making these products available and thanks to Schaller for making top notch components!

My favorite bridge.

This is such a nice bridge. Exact spacing for each string. Do you like the string spacing a little wider/narrower? No problem! It's a little pricey, but well worth it!

Great fix

I recently built a Les Paul kit and the Bridge was slightly off center,the Schaller bridge allowed me to center the string spacing and the guitar plays great.
