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.

A very cool & versatile way out for many guitars

I have only recently received my order for these bridges and must say I am impressed with the quality of machining & finish. Very versatile for different tops. Reasonably priced and will order them again. A great product.

Only so-so

I bought this for a LP Jr. kit project, and the quality is decent considering the price. I've never had the "original" product that this is based on so I can't say if it's the same or not, but on this kit, at least, I had to modify the inserts and posts to make the bridge sit low enough on the body to get a reasonable 12th fret clearance. I recessed the insert flanges flush with the body and turned about .04" off the bottom flange of the posts to make them screw in a little further. With everything down tight it was playable but not ideal. Thinking of grinding down the saddles now. Could have been the neck angle was not to spec, but on this particular brand of kit everything else has been spot on, so I don't know. Just a heads up for others who might be thinking of using the item, be sure you check the neck angle clearance.

a great alternative to the PRS SE bridge

I got one of these off of a friend who got it from stew mac for my PRS SE Tremonti. The PRS bridge is OK, but you are very limited on doing a setup on intonation. This bridge is similar to the old ones by Badass. It does the job. I recommend it for almost any stopbar style guitar without an adjustable bridge.

Nifty bargain

I installed this bridge on my heretofore unintonable 58 LP Jr.. It worked nicely is waaay less than a TP and it plays great

Nice bridge

Nice bridge and if you're prone to errors setting saddle location this bridge is for you, TONS of adjustment. Much better than a traditional Jr. bridge. but I still like a roller T.O.M. better.

Badass bridge

I've looked around and this is the best. The bridge is exactly what is was looking for. Very well made and the saddles are brass. The adjusting screws fit perfect so I didn't have to pull the original nuts out of the body. Super fast shipping. I am so happy. I found my store where I am buying all my guitar parts!!

Just Like The Old Days...

I'm not sure where Leo Quan went, but this bridge is a very accurate reproduction of the Badass bridge of the 1970's. Gibson Les Paul Jr.'s and other Gibsons that didn't have a tune-o-matic bridge were designed when the only guitar strings available were huge flat-wounds. After Eric Clapton made it fashionable to use light-gauge strings with an un-wound third or "G" string, a lot of these guitars wouldn't play in tune with light strings, so Leo Quan invented the Badass. The Badass was made from chrome-plated brass, so the guitar sounded a lot different than it did with the stock light aluminum "wrap-around" tailpiece. This new reproduction sounds the same way. You may have to re-think your amp's tone control settings after installing one of these. You'll be able to play in tune, though.

didn't work for me.

Seems well made but is too tall to get the action low enough for my tastes on a Gibson Melody Maker V.

This bridge allowed me to finally get accurate intonation on my Epiphone Les Paul Jr. Special (already modified with the addition of a neck pickup). I use .009s on this guitar because I do a LOT of extreme bends (minor 3rd - fourth), so I had to do a little smoothing of the first string saddle to stop the breakage I was getting - small price to pay for great intonation!

Simple and Affordable

Great simple bridge that will upgrade your non adjustable wrap around bridges. Good quality for the price.
