Adjustable Wraparound Bridge

About This Item

A modern reproduction of the first combo bridge/tailpiece to feature individually adjustable saddles.

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
2-3/64"
(51.82mm)
Saddle radius
12"
(304.80mm)
Stud spacing
3-1/4"
(82.55mm)
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

Bridge and Tailpiece reference image

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. Choose your file size as you would when slotting a nut: use the same gauge as the string, or a few thousandths larger. After filing to the desired depth, we suggest polishing the slot with Mitchell's Abrasive Cord to remove file marks and burrs.

Perfect fit on gibson firebird zero

By

Verified Buyer


This is a fine quality bridge. It is a tad tall.be sure to check string height..I put this on a Gibson firebird zero and the fit is perfect although I have the bridge adjusted all the way flat on the body to get the strings low enough..

Great fit !!

By

I bought a Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Special a while ago. It's a great guitar for the price but the fixed wrap around bridge doesn't allow you to adjust individual strings - so some strings are not ever in tune across the fretboard. This bridge works great and was a breeze to install - no drilling. I used the original posts and this bridge fit perfectly. The only problem is if you break a string it is very difficult to change it because the wraparound bridge is so close to the back pickup that there is very little room to get under it (but that is the guitar design)
This bridge is great!!!

Essential Upgrade For LP Junior

By

Verified Buyer


Intonation was lacking on my Epi LP Junior. This item solved the issue. I read another user's review recommending a .5 mm neck shim to correct for the increased height of this particular bridge. As a result of that advice, I achieved good action and intonation with a 1-2 mm clearance before this bridge bottoms out against the guitar body. That's as close to perfect as a $125 guitar deserves to be. The chrome looks great too. It seems like all of these wrap around bridges have a sloppy fit over the posts. As a result the string tension pulls the bridge into a slanted orientation. I'm going to try using e-clips as spacers to correct for this. I would add a fifth star for a bridge with better tolerances in this area. Tone pros posts are the other fix for this, reportedly.

Wrap around bridge

By

Verified Buyer


The quality was a bit less than my old Leo Quan, specifically the bridge saddle details could have been a bit crisper as far as the notch details and the fit of the saddle in the pocket, but then again, I'm a machinist an notice things about fit and finish...its quite useable with some refinement

Fixed my Les Paul Junior 2019 Tribute tuning issues

By

Verified Buyer


I just received this bridge yesterday, and after installing and FILING the saddles , I set the intonation and it plays beautifully up and down the neck in tune .
I’ve seen reviews complaining the strings are too high, we’ll Stew MAC says right on the description page about filing the saddles. It’s not a drop in and go it requires a title patience and diligence to carefully file each saddle . I lowered the bridge as low as possible then filed each saddle till I had the correct height for my personal specs. Adjusted the intonation and it plays wonderfully up and down the neck .. I used my stew Mac string gauge and stewmac nut files and some very patient filing and checking and I now have a .070 action at the seventeenth fret all the across all six strings. I also filed my nut and it’s now a very well set up guitar that plays in tune up and down the neck.

High Quality

This is a high quality bridge that just happens to be inexpensive. This bridge is very solid and well made with good materials and finished nicely Cant really ask for more. It would be hard to beat this bridge at any price point, this one just happens to be half the price (or less) of the others.

adjustable wrap-around bridge for Gibson LP Jr.

By

Verified Buyer


The fit is too loose and sloppy where the bridge mounts to the pins, allowing the rear of the bridge to tilt up excessively and producing action (gap) of about 3/8" at neck joint to body. Impossible to use without shimming.

Very nice upgrade

I purchased this bridge for my Epiphone Les Paul Junior w/P 90's. Exact fit and no tooling required.
This is the second bridge I bought since I gave my previous Junior away after replacing the bridge, tuners and saddle to my grandson. Fit perfectly although I had to screw it down to it's lowest point to keep the action low where I like it.

The StewMac Adjustable Wraparound bridge is the perfect solution to the standard wraparound bridges that come with Les Paul Jr, Epiphone SL guitars (and others). They allow for perfect intonation over the standard model. But there is a warning: The bridge sits higher than the standard bridge, and even when lowering the mounting bolts all the way down, it is still tall. But StewMac offers a solution: the StewMac tapered Shims. On my Epiphone SL, the .5-degree shim was the perfect solution to raise the neck angle to lower the action.

Overall, a great couple of accessories that make the Epiphone SL a very playable guitar.
