Drop in replacement on a Gibson ES-175. Very high quality item!
These are nice, but not exceptional
Great bridge! I make new guitars (not repairing older ones) and its a breeze to set up for someone who knows what theyre doing.
These will not work on many Asian-made guitars as the posts are of a different size. Excellent quality though.
This bridge is beautiful and a huge upgrade for my axe.
My 2001 De Armond M72 needed a new bridge, it was buzzing and fuzzing. This bridge did the trick, just loosened the strings, lifted off the old one from the posts and put the new one on, didn't even have to use the new post! perfect fit! Took about 5 minutes to do! The new one was already notched, didn't have to buy files and learn how to do that. Good clean and clear sound. Adjusted string height between 3 and 4/64th (very low) and set intonation, I now have a very awesome AXE!!
High quality bridge for my Höfner.
The factory bridge that came on my Gibson Custom Shop ES-330L was junk ... bent adjustment screws made it impossible to intonate the guitar, and the open-trough design allows the bridge pieces fall out during string changes. The Gotoh is a drop-in replacement for the factory bridge, and uses a retained-screw design that keeps the parts in place. The saddles are pre-notched and required minimal additional filing in order to perfectly seat the strings. String alignment over the pickup poles was dead-on accurate. Highly recommended.
I was having problems with the cheap tune o matic bridge that with my LP style guitar. I careful read the specs for this bridge and ordered it. Once I received the bridge all I had to do was drop it right in place. And everything was improved greatly.
Love the high quality of the Gotoh bridge and it's a perfect drop in replacement for the original but without the buzz and rattle thanks to the lack of a retaining wire. However, the pre-notched saddles are a terrible idea, as my Lester's string spread is slightly different from the one on the Gotoh. I ended up filing new notches on the high and low E saddles to prevent the string from popping off the saddles. The result is sonically and functionally acceptable but looks a bit ragged. I wish Stewmac offered the option of ordering the part without the pre-notched saddles, or offered replacement saddles without the notches pre-cut.
