Golden Age Roller Bridge

About This Item

The only roller bridge that matches the 12" radius of the Nashville Tune-O-Matic. Low-friction brass roller saddles let the strings move freely and return to accurate pitch.

We designed this bridge to work with Bigsby vibratos, in place of the Nashville Tune-o-matic. This is the only roller bridge that matches the 12" radius of the Nashville, so you maintain the string action you're used to. We gave it a low profile to keep the strings clear of the bridge body too, eliminating a frequent source of vibrato problems.

Thumbwheel height-adjustment studs and knurled bushings are included.

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.

Golden Age Roller Bridge installed on ES335 copy

I replaced the original bridge on my Saville ES335 copy with a Golden Age Roller Bridge. It eliminated dead spots and improved the sustain and overall sound.

New life for a Les Paul Special

I was about to sell my LPS due to the intonation issues and bridge rattle from the TOM. I researched the LP-centric forums and looked at what the market had to offer. I decided to roll the dice on this due to the cost vs some other competitors. Glad I did!

I used the stock inserts in the body but used the posts from StewMac. It was a very, very tight fit - almost like clipping down the bridge over the posts. At first, I thought it wouldn't fit, but it did with a little coaxing.

I don't know if this is something intrinsic to the design or something that I've done wrong with the unit, but its pretty touch to adjust the bridge height without removing it and then manipulating the posts to raise/lower the height - then clip the bridge back on. Once its on, it really on! Perhaps this helps with the energy transfer to the body....?

Nonetheless, I'm very happy with it. The rattle is gone and it does seem to ring a little louder and clearer which is nice. I'll probably order others to replace my 3 other TOM-equipped Gibsons.

Integral part of "How to Keep a LesPaul in Tune"

Here's what it took to create Tuning Stability in my 2012 gold top: Grover metal 'keystones', a zero-fret nut, a Bigsby B5, and THIS roller bridge. Finally my Lester is safe to play on stage....
Now it not only holds string pitch for most of a set(!), but when it goes a semi-tone Out it often fixes itself with a little perfunctory ~tap~ on the twang-bar.

All my TOM-style guitars have one of these, now (they work w/ LesTrem as well as with Bigsby or stock hard-tail).

Perfect Duesenberg upgrade!

By

Verified Buyer


A perfect upgrade and fit for my tremelo Duesenberg!

12" radius, same stud spacing. you can still use the original studs and bushings, but its worth installing the new ones. smooth rollers, flanged bushings, bigger studs, better stud ends, less slop, less broken strings and more stable tuning.

Wow! It actually works.

Good job. I was skeptical this was going to help my Gibson SG Deluxe 2013 with a Bigsby. This guitar had terrible tuning issues and I was getting ready to sell it. I can honestly say this roller bridge worked for my guitar. Dropped right in with no issues. Looks good, stays in tune and the tone is still there. Thanks.

Golden Age Roller Bridge - fingers crossed

I haven't installed it yet, but it looks like a solid product. Unfortunately, it uses M5 threads and my Ibanez AM153 used the more standard M8. I could pull the bushings, but I'd rather find a solution using the existing M8 bushings. I found a pair of Stainless Steel M5 to M8 adaptors. I'm going to try that as a solution - at least to see if the bridge fits the existing spacing. I'm not going to pull the bushings until I'm certain that the bridge-post spacing works. I wish Golden Age could just supply the M8 posts.

Just installed my new Golden Age Roller Bridge - Chrome on my first home made SB guitar. No sweat installation was easy. I am building this guitar from a tree (hickory) that hit my house during Hurricane Irma. Hoping it will be a player & not a wall hanger. I an running all the components in from the back, no pick guard on this beauty.

Works well. I did drill the bridge so that it fit the existing posts because I did not want to modify anything on the guitar body.

Fits my Les Paul Studio perfectly, tuning stability is improved and the sustain is much better.
