A modern take on the Gibson tune-o-matic
The Gibson Tune-o-matic bridge remains one of the most revered and copied pieces of guitar hardware ever developed, and the Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge offers unnotched saddles with individual saddle screw retainer clips, and a wider footing for increased intonation range. The stud and thumbwheel are also cast directly onto the bridge, allowing the Nashville Tune-o-matic to slide directly into place.

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. 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.
