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.

Great Product!

I used this on an original design guitar. It gave me the flexibility I needed to place the electronics control cavity to my liking. The fact that its a bridge/saddle/tailpiece together saved some space. It looks and feels super high quality. And the design allows for less string tension on the high e and b strings for comfortable bending. The sound is fantastic and it intonated very easily. I love it and it will be the standard bridge I put on this style guitar. Jam Guitars USA

Excellent Product, but...

This bridge worked well on my Gibson Les Paul Goddess, but does not work with my 1954 Les Paul Goldtop reissue (R4) since the Goldtop bridge studs are slightly shifted to the bass side rather than symmetrical. The string symmetry ends up being too shifted towards the bass side.

Great Upgrade

I shoppedaround alot looking at $100 bridges then got one of these. I stuck it on a Gibson Melody Maker I was hotrodding so I could set my intonation and was very happy I did. Installation and setup was FUN ! It's got locking stud mount too. If you're replacing a wrap around so it can be intonated, GET THIS MODEL !! SWEEEET !

Good looking bridge

Overall, I really like this bridge. My only complaint is that the post washer is practically the same size as the insert, and for a newbie like me, that doesn't give you a lot of room for any error around where the insert meets the body (i.e. the post washer won't hide any errors). In the end, it turned out great though.

great product

I refinished a late 80's vintage Epiphone guitar and used every part and the electronics from stew mac. I am very pleased with this bridge and the construction material. Great alignment and great look for a once tremolo sporting guitar.

Hipshot Baby Grand Bridge

I love the aesthetics of this bridge but I am really pleased with the quality of construction, too. A really great product.
