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.

Very nice

Here is an example of excellent Japanese quality! I use Gotoh bridges and tuners on all my guitars, and I am totally satisfied with the quality.

Improved Tone

I was not unhappy with the bridge on my limited edition Epiphone Dot, but was intrigued by the many reviews that reported better tone with the Gotoh. At this price, why not give it a try? So I had a buddy notch it out better and was going to install it but was put off by the fact that the bridge did not fit as tightly as the original, even on its own studs. It was a little wobbly with no strings on. So I packed it back up and let it sit for a half year. Finally decided to give it a try last week. DANG! Doesn't wobble at all with the strings on. But more important, this bridge has definitely improved the tone of this guitar! Louder with more clarity and less muddiness. Great upgrade for little money.

Solid for the money

This is a great bridge for the money. The saddle adjustment had a solid precision type feel while adjusting them. Nice!

Yes and No

Installed this bridge on Epi '56 Goldtop Reissue. If you're replacing the Lock Tone bridge with this, keep the bushings in the guitar. The Gotoh bushings are too small. Luckily, the Gotoh studs screw right into the bushings. I also noticed the string notches are much shallower on the Gotoh than on the Lock Tone. Easy enough to fix if needed. Nice bit of extra travel for intonation. Notes are crisper and more defined on this bridge. I could tell that from my tuner. For the price, I'll hang on to it. Excellent and timely shipping as usual.

Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster

Bought the 1511-n as a replacement for a Classic Player Jazzmaster bridge that was plagued with rattles. Excellent quality bridge. Rattles solved. String spacing is somewhat narrower than Fender's bridge on this guitar, resulting in a slight yet visible bend in the high and low E strings behind their saddles, but it is not enough to cause tuning issues or tremolo hangups etc. The slightly narrower string spacing is also noticeably more comfortable to play. A vast improvement over the Fender product because of quality alone.

Quality tune-o-matic.

A classic. Good quality. Care should be taken as with most chrome bridges to not damage the plating.

Gotoh Bridge.

I recently purchased this bridge for one of my Les Pauls, It solved my tuning problems ok but what surprised me was the quality of the product - first class, I am so impressed that I am going to but two more for my other Les Pauls, price was great also, and staff always helpful - great service, many thanks.

Excellent Bridge Replacement WOW

I replaced the bridge on my Epiphone Les Paul Custom and WOW ... a very significant immediate difference. I kept the same strings on so it would be a like comparison. I am really surprised at how much difference this bridge can make. The guitar is much louder, much more lively, springier, etc... I am very happy with this bridge. I also ordered the accompanying stop tail piece. Extremely easy installation and high quality. Highly Recommended for replacement on Epiphones.
