I have two Gibson Les Paul, 1996 and 2013, originally equipped with Nashville TOM bridge. I decided to change to vintage like ABR-1 for them, and this ABR-1 is just fitting so good because hole diameter is a bit larger than others. But negative point is that made in Japan.
I purchased this bridge to replace the original one on my 1966 Gretsch. Now my intonation is perfect and I have sustain like never before.
Great bridge. When I first installed it, the buzzing was very pronounced. I then took a flathead and pressed down on the retainer wire; this jams the screws and eliminates all buzzing.
Bought one of these bridges for a '59 Les Paul project trying to recreate the nice solid transfer of string vibration that my 50th anniversary has. BIG MISTAKE! This bridge produces a harsh, ringing buzz/rattle that I could attribute to the sloppy fit of the saddles/screws where they fit in the bridge. Replaced this one with the Gotoh bridge and no ringing buzz or rattling.
I used this bridge to replace the original on a Brazos ES-336. The old bridge had sagged in the middle. I did have to create grooves for all the strings, but it fits perfectly, and the guitar is set up better now, and also plays much better as well.
I installed this bridge on a LP replica and was very pleased with the result. I especially liked the fact that the saddles aren't notched. I was able to cut the notches to achieve perfect spacing for the fingerboard and pickups.
The saddles have very raw surface, not so clean as i expected. 4 of them are with higher tolerances, they buzzing and rattling all the time. It's a cheap japanese replacement for an cheap japanese gitar, not reccommended for any guitar in professional use. I have tried the gotoh version too, but it has the same illnes.
