The wraparound design brought accurate intonation to Les Paul Junior®, SG Junior® and similar solidbody guitars, and has been popular since the 1970s.

String spread
Saddle radius
Stud spacing
Stud threads
M8 x 1.25mm

Two alignment screws adjust the overall intonation. The height-adjustable mounting studs include knurled bushings. The strings load from the front of the die-cast base, wrap over the back of the bridge, and over the notched saddles. Drill 7/16" (11mm) holes for the bushings.

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.

Tip: Slotting Tune-o-matic style saddles
Nut slotting files work great for metal saddles. Simply use the same techniques you'd use for nut slotting (read more in Making a Nut, Step-by-Step). After filing to the desired depth, we suggest polishing the slot with Mitchell's Abrasive Cord to remove file marks and burrs.

Excellent Choice

I recently purchased this wraparound bridge as a replacement on a Les Paul Jr. I'm pleased with this one. No more intonation problems whatsoever and the Gold dressed this black Jr. up real nice. If you're looking to replace your old stop tail bridge with something that will get you intonated all the way up the neck, you won't go wrong with this piece or Stew-Mac. No waiting games here. Mine went straight out and was sitting on my axe in three days.
Thanks Stew-Mac. You're my first choice.

Great wrap-around for the price!

Had a non-adjustable bridge, put the new one on and it helped the guitar 100%. Intonation is now possible!

Cool little bridge

This is a cool little bridge. Worked great for the LP Jr I was building. A couple of things to watch out for though:

1: Careful how close to the bridge pickup you put it. I have mine too close, and it's a little difficult to feed strings through it.

2: On mine the saddles were fairly sharp, and I've broken a number of strings right across them. I filed them a bit and threw some pencil lead dust in there...seems to help so far.

3: The post are the width of a tailpiece, and not a tune-o-matic, so if your body is drilled for a tune-o-matic bridge like mine was, be prepared to do some hole filling.

Good Choise

With its original bridge, my Ibanez ARX 500 had serious problems with tuning. I installed the Wraparoud Bridge and I solved the problem and is improvied well the sustain. Only negative is that in Italy customs fees are quite high.

Inexpensive but effective

I bought this to fix a Maestro/Gibson Mini-V, which had misplaced bridge posts. The threaded posts have the same pitch as the sockets on the Mini-V, but I had reduce the diameter of posts where the bridge sits because the fit was too tight. This was also a problem with the original bridge as well. The radius is a pretty good match without modification and at the lowest setting for the bridge the action is pretty good as well. This bridge is definitely not a high quality item, but it offers smoking value for the $$. Inexpensive. Effective.

this is a great bridge/tailpiece. Not only because it doesn't buzz and it doesn't come loose and everything but, its also the bridge and the tailpiece in one which means less money spent, and less holes to drill

Sweet bridge!

My homebuilt solidbody needed a new bridge. The saddles on my Leo Quan Badass bridge were worn too low and the G string had begun to buzz. There was a bit of fitting required as this bridge is thicker. I had to change out the posts too, but once all was sorted it fits well and it sounds great. I miss the fine tuners I had but I am happy with the sound and the look. Good adjust-ability too for intonation. Recommended.

I liked it!

I used this wrap around bridge on a new build, I had to recess the top to lower the bridge to work, as I used a Fender neck and a flat neck pocket. I used a EMG pickup from Stu Mac, and got a nice soft warm tone. It worked well for the price. However, I did notice that the tolerance between the post and bridge hooks was very sloppy, allowing the bridge to roll forward under string tension, yet it still preformed well enough.

Simple solution

This is a good cheap fix for the wonky wrap-around tailpiece on my 2001 Melody Maker. It's a straight drop-in, and corrects most of the intonation issues. It doesn't fix everything though. The right strings seem to be essential - for instance, a wound G string appears to be a must. I'll also end up replacing the nut.
My only complaint about this bridge is that the material is fairly soft. It's very easy to mar it while setting the intonation. Still, I consider this to be money well spent. And it looks pretty good too.
