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.

excellent purchase, very easy to install, a real change in the sound, install it in a gibson les paul studio 2012, apparently already came pre-toned and what I liked the most that brings the exact radius of the freetboard 12

excellent bridge for the LP

By

Verified Buyer


replaced my lower lvl style bridge and stop piece with this black set. Works much better. I would have preferred a locking model but this one was really good for the cost. Fixed my intonation issues and occasional rattle also improved the looks of my translucent black rare LPM that has been refitted with vintage wiring and Seymour's. Helped turn that lowered priced LP into a real workhorse tone monster with a very cool fat neck.

Put on a Flying V

So I wanted to put all black hardware on my Gibson Flying V. I took a chance and bought this roller bridge because it’s black and finding a black Nashville bridge ain’t that easy. Well it paid off the tone improved and it’s easy to intonate use on a non Bigsby guitar it’s great!

After a little modding I got this installed on my Dinky, and WOW! Super sustain and easy intonation. This mod made a very noticeable difference in the sound (for the better). I would highly recommend.

Great Roller Bridge !

I put this Bridge on my Epiphone ES 355 Joe Bonamassa guitar with a Bigsby. The Bridge this guitar came with was the one with the Retaining Wire, It rattled and the strings didn't move well thru it.
This Roller Bridge is perfect for this guitar as it has the 12" Radius and the Centre to Centre distance for the Posts that Match this Guitar. The only difference was the Thread on the Posts that Thread into the Bushings that Push into the Guitar Body. The Threads on this guitar were M4 X .70 and the Threads on the Studs that came with this Bridge are M5 X .80. The Bushings, that push into the Guitar Body, are larger in diameter and longer on The Epiphone Guitar than the Bushings that came with the new Bridge Also, and therefore Bushings in the Guitar are longer and have more contact inside the Guitar Body also. This is all good as the larger thread diameter makes the Bridge much more Stable. Also, if you want to go to the Nashville Bridge without the retaining wire that StewMac sells at some time, and you make the modification I show below it will be a direct fit.
The only modification that I had to make was to remove the Bushings from the Guitar Body and drill and Tap them to the larger M5 X .80 thread. To remove the Studs I dropped a 1/8" diameter x .75" long Dowel down thru the threaded hole in Bushing in the Guitar Body. Then took an M4 X .70 (which is the thread size in the Guitar) Socket Head Cap Screw and screwed it into the Bushing, the Cap Screw makes contact with the Dowel and the Dowel contacts inside the Guitar Body and it works as a Jack Screw to push the bushing out as you tighten the Cap Screw.
Do Not try and change the thread in the bushing with them installed in the Guitar Body and make sure you extract the Bushings out as a straight pull. Do not wiggle them when you pull them out as you will deform the hole in the Guitar Body. As you screw the Cap Screw the bushing pushes out straight and evenly.
Then I took the Bushings to a machine shop and had them Drilled and Tapped to the M5 X .80 thread that suites this Roller Bridge. I don't recommend doing this yourself because if you make a mistake they are through away and the Bushings that come with the new Roller Bridge are too small in diameter for the this Guitar Body. For other guitars you will need to assess what hardware sizes etc.. come with your Guitar ! All Guitars are more than likely different so before you do anything evaluate all the Hardware on your Guitar first. This is just what I did for my Guitar !
This Bridge works great, I primarily made this change to make the Bridge more stable and improve tuning Stability. The Bridge used to flex when you used the Bigsby and now it is stable.
It looks great also..!
StewMac is a great company to do business with..

GREAT PRODUCT - Solved the tuning problem!

Added the roller bridge to my Gretsch 5422T (with a little work on the original pinned, wooden bridge base) and lo, the tuning problems are vanquished! The Bigsby does its job now as it should: twanging shimmers of rockabilly sound! Thanks, StewMac!
(The only caveat is that I must change my style a bit. Plucking up with a pinky finger works fine on an acoustic but on the Gretsch, an E string can be dislodged from its little saddle. MUST USE PICK ONLY, I tell myself...)

My first guitar build, this bridge couldn't be easier to install. This replaced the T.O.M. I originally planned to install. No slots to bother with, the tapered brass barrels easily accommodated the string angle of the offset bridge. Sounds good to me. Will buy again.
