About This Item

A direct replacement for most Tune-o-matic style bridges!
Schaller's unique variation of the Tune-o-matic bridge features low-friction roller saddles for smoother tuning and tremolo action.

These intonation-adjustable brass saddles allow adjustable string spread, and are angled slightly for correct alignment with the offset mounting studs and threaded bushings. The bridge can be used with standard Gibson® guitar tailpieces.

1-29/32" to 2-1/4"
(48.42mm to 57.15mm)
Saddle radius

(355.60mm)
Post spacing

(73.82mm)
Stud threads
M5 x .8

Use a 1/4" drill bit to install 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.

Fit Perfectly on my Gretsch Electromatic Jet Club

By

Verified Buyer


The wide area this bridge gives to adjust intonation will make your guitar sing like an angel. The rollers are a bonus too as string bends and chords in general feel like they play much more fluidly.

To adjust the rollers to the left or the right simply roll them one way for one and the other way for the other. To adjust the rollers from the front to the back use the screws on the side of the bridge.

Other than that the posts that the bridge comes with screw directly into the holes already in your guitar from the factory.

It's pretty easy to setup, although I did have one slight hiccup when installing mine. One of the screws was bound up and instead of backing off and then coming back the intended direction with my screwdriver I kept turning and I caused the metal clip that holds the screw in place to pop out. I was able to easily find the clip and push it back in place with some tweezers and a flat head screwdriver though. If your binds up just be sure to back the screw off in the opposite direction before continuing in the desire direction. That will probably keep you from making the same mistake I did.

All in all, I'm very pleased with this product and I think it will be even more pleasing when I get my Bigsby B7 tailpiece mounted.

NIce Bridge

I bought this to put on a Gretsch with a Bigsby. It is a nice bridge and adjustable in about every way you would desire, However, the radius was wrong for the Gretsch. I knew from the description it was not correct but was hoping it would work. It was also smaller than the origional Gretsch which made it look out of scale. Not the Bridge's fault, just my interpretation of the look I was after. The Bridge is fantastic, just not usable in my case, at least on the guitar I intended. Probably use on another at some time.

Replaces Fender Flame Standard Bridge

By


This is a "lesson learned" note rather than a review. I am UK-based and saw this on the StewMac site, but should have taken note of the price because I simply assumed it would be more expensive to post from the US to the UK. It would actually have cost me less than the amount I paid (with free shipping) from the UK supplier I subsequently bought mine from. Sorry StewMac, I'll compare your prices in future.

This "review" is being added for the information of others to say that the Schaller STM Bridge
Model: 1208 (Chrome: 12080200, Gold: 12080500 - other finishes available) (https://schaller.info/en/bridges/328/stm?c=52) is the EXACT model that was fitted to the Fender Flame and Esprit guitars (Standard, Elite and Ultra versions) from the Fender "Master Series" produced from 1983 to 1985, and which then offered the Robben Ford signature model in 1986. They were made in the Fujigen Gakki factory in Japan and were fitted with Schaller hardware throughout. Ibanex, Sanox, and other brands were made there and some of those also have this Schaller bridge.

The bridge on my 1985 Fender Fender Flame Standard collapsed and cracked because the substantial thickness of foam lining in the lid of my hardcase has been pushing down on the bridge and tailpiece of this guitar that had been locked in its case unplayed for 6 or more years. All "Tune-o-Matic" type bridges eventually begin to sag under the string pressure, but mine cracked. I'm glad to have found a replacement, but I should never have discounted StewMac on the assumption that it would cost more ordering it from the UK.

Great, "but"!

Love this, and it was a "Drop in and play" replacement for the Tun-0-Matic, (UGH!) that came on my new Elsctromatic GreTsch Jet! If you got a Bigsby, add the BiggsFix Tensioner, along with this GREAT bridge, and "Mak-Show" mates! BAD PART? The same old "SLOTTED" intonation screws!!! Why don't these people go with Socket Head Allen screws??? A "Bondus" Ball end wrench would be PERFECT for this App, can't slip out and DING anything!! Come on Schaller, (and the rest) "LOGON"!! Plus, BLACK Allen screws would be a nice touch against the Chrome, D YT??

Most versatile roller bridge!

By

Verified Buyer


I picked up a Wildkat that already had a roller bridge on it. Not sure what brand it was because there were no markings, but it was one that had set screws on either side of the posts to help with alignment and intonation, I guess. Anyway, with that roller bridge, the string height was really high. The bridge posts were screwed in as far as they would go, so it was either live with really high action, or find an alternative. This one is it. The profile is very low and the design is such that the thumb screws recess a bit into the bottom of the bridge, allowing it to sit quite a bit lower. And it fits very well. The included import posts fit the Epiphone studs and the bridge sits very neatly on the posts with no play or rattle.

Plays great - work great with Bigsby

A very nice product

By

Verified Buyer


I decided to put a Duesenberg vibrato on my Gibson-stye guitar and figured that the Schaller bridge would be a good match. It is! I am very happy with the quality of the Schaller bridge and the fact that I can set the string width is a huge plus (I like a slightly wider spacing and the adjustability also means you can align the strings perfectly over the pickup poles). The only drawback I see is that when you change strings you need to be very aware of NOT moving those saddles as they turn so easily and just a tiny turn makes a big difference. But as far as quality and functionality is concerned this bridge is a winner. Good product at a good price--kudos StewMac.

Fits right on my De-angelico. The spacing for posts seems a little not matching for my Epiphone Sheraton though, but if I can make it work , I will.
High quality bridge. Improves playability and sustain. Overall my favorite bridge.
Also using on a hand made guitar -a tight fit but great sustain and ability to bend notes.

Must-Do mod for Gretsch Electromatic Pro Jet!

By

Verified Buyer


This bridge eliminates the occasional binding due to acute string break angle between the bridge and the tension roller on the Bigsby B-5 unit.
I was changing strings anyways so the bridge swap took about one minute.
It came with optional sized posts and thumb wheels (which I did use) but the original posts worked fine.
The rollers move freely under tension which allows intonation adjustments without loosening strings between tweaks.
And it is drop dead gorgeous in Gold on my Black Pro Jet.
