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.

Great replacement part for Epiphone

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!

Gotoh Bridge

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.

Fantastic Upgrade

This allows for better intonation that the stock bridge on my Epi Dot and I am not breaking strings anymore.....great choice, cheap and easy to install.

Cost-Effective Upgrade

This was money well-spent. I was finally able to intonate my Epi '56 Gold Top, and in combination with the Gotoh lightweight tailpiece, got a boatload more sustain and a clearer, bell-like tone in the bargain!

Fantastic bridge

I liked the first bridge so much that I bought a second one for another guitar of mine. Excellent build quality that adds sustain! Best of all - no more retaining wire buzzing!(It was driving me nuts). Highly recommended. Thanks

Awesome bridge even more awesome price!

Awesome bridge, get rid of the retainer wire rattle from my Epiphone Les Paul Standard factory bridge. A lot more easier to intonate the guitar. It does sound a tad brighter than the stock bridge. The bushing that came with it is a bit smaller than the original one in the guitar. No big deal, the stud will screw right into the stock bushing just fine.

Great Bridge

I installed the Gotoh Tune-o-matic Bridge on a guitar kit I was building to help get intonation perfect. while the Gotoh did that it also stepped up sustain and perhaps overall volume somehow, it seems louder anyway. Gone is the annoying buzz of the wire retainer on my previous bridge! Now, if StewMac would sell the screws and nuts for the Gotoh separately.......I may need some in the future

excellent bridge

I will try to keep this short. this Gotoh bridge is great! the only thing I had to do was make the low E string notch a little bigger. and the bridge is sturdy and well built. it also helped with intonation because it has a wider range than the economy bridge that came with my guitar. And, StewMac had it at a better price than anyone else. you can't go wrong with it.. unless you're replacing it on a guitar with an odd pole-to-pole measurement. I am using it on my Italia mondial sportster, if anyone else has one and was curious. now I am unstoppable! thanks for reading. - Blake

Great Product, Great Price

I bought this as a replacement for an Epiphone Les Paul stock bridge that had a horrible buzz from the retaining wire. No buzz with this bridge and it vastly improved sustain as well. Highly recommend this as a replacement to the stock Epi bridge and the posts fit the stock bushings.
