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.

Great Repalcement

By

Verified Buyer


While restoring a customer's Jay Turser LP Copy, I noticed the bridge was in very bad condition due to the cheap material used. Being a cheap guitar, keeping the old bridge was not necessary. I found this replacement on Stumac and it fits perfect, looks great and functions well.

Great bridge

Got this as a replacement for my Ibanez AS73. Great fit and the intonation screws move smoothly.

Outstanding quality!

You won't find better Machining or plating. It's honestly like a work of art. I received this bridge two to three days earlier than expected I think I got it in 48 hours.

Replace that Fender adjusto-magic bridge.

Verified Buyer


I love my mim jaguar. Quality is out standing except the bridge. Real buzz kill. This bridge is a drop in replacement. The threads on the bushings match also. I know it is a 12in radius but the one I removed was 12in radius also. It's not a big deal to me, but you can file the saddles down if needed. I searched a long time for replacement and stumbled upon this one reading the reviews. So, if you are not satisfied with your Classic players Jaguar or Jazzmaster bridge, give this one a try.

Gotoh Tune o matic bridge

Replace the ABR 1 on Ephiphone LP. The ABR 1 had an annoying buzz where the the B & G strings went over the saddle. The intonation screw fell out when the spring fell off while attenpting to adjust the intonation. Enough already. The Gotoh works perfectly.

An upgrade worth doing

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this bridge to replace the one that came on a 2011 Epiphone Les Paul Standard that I'm using as a project guitar.

I first replaced the plastic nut with bone and cut the slots to fit the 10's I use. I leveled the frets and got the action nice and low (3/64's at the 12'th fret). Next I put in Seymour Duncan SH-1 '59s for the bridge and neck along with a Switchcraft 3-way and CTS pots. The guitar sounded much improved but still fell short of greatness. Scratching my head, I looked around and figured that for about 20 bucks a Gotoh Tune-o-matic might be a mod worth doing.

As it turned out, it was. I was delighted to find that it was a true 'drop-in' replacement. I used nut filles to notch the slots. It wasn't that big a job. The result? It makes a *noticeable* difference in the guitar's tone and sustain. It might be my imagination but I think it pushed the guitar out of the 'good' zone towards greatness. True rap.

So, if you're on the fence about doing this upgrade, do it. Now. You'll thank me later.

Perfect for when you need some extra saddle travel!

By

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

Verified Buyer


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.
