Specs
This adjustable bridge/tailpiece adds intonation adjustment to the Les Paul® Junior and similar guitars, and it's a great alternative for custom instruments, too.

Saddle

2-1/16"12"3-1/4"

The strings install at the front, two allen screws adjust the overall bridge angle, and the unnotched metal saddles have individual intonation screws. Mounting posts are not included (TonePros locking posts are required for optimum setup).

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.

Light is right

You need weight for sustain - that's what they say. Nonsense; you need stiffness. But for great tone, lightness is what it is all about. Just look at any really top class acoustic. The Pigtail bridge has all of this. It dropped straight into my 1962 Melody Maker - I didn't even need to centre the grub screws. A couple of slight tweeks to the saddles and the job was done. I was fully expecting to have to make major adjustments to the height, but no, that was spot on too. This is a must-have replacement for any wraparound Gibson-style bridge.
