Upgrade your ABR-1 with TonePros. One of the electric guitar's easiest upgrades, TonePros' locking functionality instantly improves any stock bridge system. For most guitars, it's a drop in replacement. The TonePros AVR2G is designed for vintage, ABR1-style guitars and comes with notched ivory-colored nylon saddles for instant installation. The gold version has unnotched saddles for custom installations.
This bridge is loaded with saddles using a special proprietary formula based on the original vintage Nylon 66 saddle material found in guitars of the late 50s and early 60s. This new material retains the tone of the original Nylon 66 saddles, but adds other hi-tech ingredients that provide a new "slippery" surface. This prevents string breakage and provides superior durability, preventing saddle wear and the breakage problems of earlier Graphite materials
What's the easiest, most simple way to improve any electric guitar? Upgrading to top-quality hardware! Increasing sustain and improving tuning stability, TonePros' patented locking functionality makes guitars come alive with rich, vibrant harmonics, transferring more resonance from strings to hardware to guitar, causing superior overall tone. Simply put, TonePros' locking hardware makes the entire guitar ring as one solid piece.
Includes the thumbwheels, posts, and wrench.
TonePros AVR2G features:
- Notched ivory-color nylon saddles—soft enough to reduce string breakage, but won't break or disintegrate (gold version is unnotched)
- Closed-bottom construction
- Zamak body with brass saddles and brass posts for rich, vintage-accurate tone
- Adjustable with flathead screwdriver
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.
