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.

Perfect for when you need some extra saddle travel!

Gotoh tune-o-magic, pretty straight forward purchess. I bought this for converting a right handed les Paul es for left handed playing. I needed the extra throw on the saddles to compensate for the reversed config. Saddles come notched but not filed. Could probably get away with not filing if you don’t have files, otherwise filings was a breeze using the StewMac nut files. Will buy one if the tail pieces if I don’t go bigsby b3.

I don’t like the precut saddles

By

The or cut saddles are kind of a waste. They aren’t big enough for actually being used as slots. I’d rather just file my own Incase the spacing is off a tad. But overall a good replacement.

Much better than the original.

This was a replacement for my ~2000 Epi LP Custom. Everything was great about that guitar except the bridge. The old pot metal bridge finally gave up the ghost, and I replaced it with this one.

It was an exact drop-in fit. I had a local luthier do the slots for me.

Now I have much better tone, better intonation, and better sustain. Speaking of sustain, do you remember that scene in "Spinal Tap" where Nigel says: "You play the note, see, and go have a bite to eat, and when you get back, it's still playing" ?

THAT is the kind of sustain were talking. :)

Would buy again, will recommend to friends. Buy this and you won't regret it.

Fantastic bridge!

Bought this as a replacement for a roller bridge that I put in my Classic Player Jaguar. The original Adjusto-matic bridge rattled and had intonation issues. The roller bridge sounded great, but took away some of the tone and rattled a bit. This bridge looks great and has fixed the intonation problems from before. Although it only comes with "starter grooves" which are quite shallow, I have had no issues with my strings staying put, and I use 10-46 gauge strings.Honestly, I think that the shallow grooves help the tone of my guitar, as it sounds better with far more clarity than the previous two bridges. If you are replacing this on a Classic Player Jaguar/Jazzmaster, use the original studs and bushing and simply replace this over the existing bridge.

Great quality, fits in an epiphone, just wish they would have an option to have the saddles slotted.

Thank you to everyone at StewMac! This went right in the original posts on my 60's Tribute Plus. This guitar had fallen out of favor with me due to the original bridges short saddle travel. There just wasn't quite enough to get everything exactly perfect even after flipping some saddles. I was a little worried when I received the bridge and realized that you can't flip the saddles (duh, right? Not sure why I didn't see that) but that was not an issue at all. I'd expected to have to max out some of them but there is still plenty of room for adjustment on all and the guitar is finally perfectly intonated. This is a great replacement for the janky original bridges on Epi Pauls. You can kinda get away with the little starter slots it comes with as you rough it in but I highly recommend StewMacs gauged slotting files and abrasive cord to finish the job. Great product and as always fantastic sales and service from StewMac. Thanks, guys!
