Instead of feeding through the guitar body, the strings attach quickly to slots in the bridge base. Requires a routed channel in the body.

Read the instructions!

It's great but you really need to be aware of how much of a gap you need to leave for the ball end.

Great Value

Great value in this well made bridge. The saddles are STEEL, better for a good telecaster twang. The top load feature is nice too, you don't need ferrules on the back. The only thing that would make it better is if one side of the saddles wasn't notched (you can flip them over)- I like to cut my own saddle notches.

Nicer than I thought!

Surprised at the quality of this bridge, especially at this price. Superficially looks like one of the cheaper topload bridges I bought recently, but is of far better quality and more robust. Would be nice if it also came in a narrower string spacing. This is replacing a 475 Schaller, which is a nice bridge but the string angle is too low.

Cheap but not "cheap"!

As previous reviewers suggested, make sure you allow for enough room for the end-balls underneath the holes in the bridge. Probably need about 1/4" to make sure you have some room to get the strings on and off.
Mounted the bridge and did a pre-fit on my firt project guitar. Still need to do some fine-tuning, but I think that is the case with any bridge. For the price, this hardware is very solid and well made.

Did the trick

An exact replacement for the crappy corroded brass bridge on an early 80's Ibanez Blazer.Cheap and works good too! Saved the day for me. Thanks Stewmac!!!

Perfect Bridge for Neck Jig

This bridge works great for a bolt on neck surrogate body.

Cheap but good!

OK, there are probably better bridges around, but I once used this bridge attracted by its low price for a cheap and fast project and the result was fine! This bridge does its job.
You need to do some routing under the bridge in order to accommodate the end balls of the string but it's a nice and good working design.
