I purchased the 1511 to replace the bridge on my lower-end Epi Les Paul. I could not beleive the difference this made to this guitar. The tone and sustain really came to life. You will need to file the saddle slots, so order a set of nut files that match your string sizes. Easy to do, just take your time.
Very good product,excellent package and shipping.
Got a Chinese LP style guitar as a gift and tore it apart. I replaced everything and this was a drop in fit, which is great. It has better mass and it adjusts smoothly. One note is that it WILL need the slots cut deeper. They come with barely a scratch for a slot and its not useable that way. It doesnt need much, and fortunately I have the files to do it, but if I didn't it would have been a pain. Other than that, its a solid upgrade and did make a significant difference in the guitar.
I bought this bridge with the intention of having a direct replacement with no work required. The reviews alone made me want to buy this bridge. I was searching for a bridge that would be better for intonation than a standard TOM bridge. The bridge fit my guitar perfectly but the saddle notches were not slotted enough. My strings kept rolling out of the notches. I tried to file the saddle nothces a little more but I don't have the proper files, needless to say, I've wasted my money. I can buy new saddles but that defeats the whole purpose. I was looking for a hassle-free replacement and this wasn't it. It's a shame because the saddles do go back a little further than a regular TOM bridge. This would have been an awesome bridge. If you are looking to buy this bridge, have some knowledge in filing saddles because your going to have to with this one.
I ordered the 1511-G as a replacement bridge on my Epi LP Ultra Pro. This is an exact fit. The tone and intonation are fantastic. Do yourself a favor and replace the stock Epi bridge. You will not be sorry. Customer service is friendly and accurate. Shipping was fast.
I have replaced the original Epiphone bridge on my ES-339 with a Gotoh bridge. This was a direct replacement and has improved the tuning and intonation greatly. I have never ordered from the States before but the price could not be beaten and the service was first class. The part only took 10 days to get across the ocean to my door and this included the New Year holidays. Simply the Best!
I got a couple of the Gold plated bridges for special projects and the number 1511-G with studs was PERFECT and rock solid.
The retainer wire on my Epiphone '58 Explorer was rattling like crazy so I ordered one of these (part # 1511-G). The screws that came with it fit the Epiphone bushings perfectly (glad I don't have to fiddle with replacing those). I haven't done any side-by-side testing, so I can't speak for any major tone improvements, but the rattle is gone!
Terrific tune a matic bridge and give your guitar a better tone..smooth adjustments and replace the original ibanez bridge nicely. This was installed on my ibanez AF85 VLS and it's great.
Direct replacement on an Epiphone SG and big improvement
