This unique post-mounted brass bridge has low-friction grooved roller saddles for smooth string return, plus advanced features for improved intonation stability. The holes for the bridge posts are elongated to allow overall intonation adjustment, and allen screws lock the bridge to the posts. The reversible roller saddles are individually adjustable for precise string intonation, and also lock to the bridge with allen screws. Allen wrench and thumbwheel mounting posts with bushings are included.

Use an 11mm 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.

Unfortunately, I do not like the locking roller bridge at all. Once it is installed it is virtually impossible to adjust the saddles because the adjustment screws are blocked by the strings. This makes for a very difficult tuning process so forget about intonation. I finally gave up and put the original back on.

Replaced a fixed tailpiece/bridge piece with that roller bridge and a Bigsby-Style Tremolo on an Epiphone SG Special. Needed to drill new holes, which partially merged into the original holes, but worked out great at the end. Intonation adjustment could be easier due to the screw are on top of the bridge. Other than that, great buy.

As other reviews warned me, this bridge did not properly fit my 2015 Fender Jazzmaster post spacings. It is around an 1/8" too tight. However, pretty much anything is better than the guitar's stock bridge, and aside from being too tight to force on, it sounds great. I had to crudely drill the post holes in the bridge out until it was able to fit. Allen set screws keep the post position in place.
The rollers are nice and have a lot of room for intonation adjustment. If you're not afraid to butcher your guitar and void a refund, this is a great price for some extra work.

This Bridge is fantastic. We installed it on a Gibson Custom Les Paul. The tonal resonance of the strings is fantastic and has improved the sound of the guitar. The biggest impact has been the stability of the tuning. We have not had to tune the guitar in many hours of play since the bridge was installed. We didn't expect this aspect at all.

Fantastic bridge. kinda hard to adjust.

I saw a reddit post recommending this bridge to pop onto my J Mascis Jazzmaster. It didn't quite just "pop on". I think the issue was the poor tolerances on the squire JM, not with this bridge. But the post spacing was just a fraction of a mm too narrow for this to fit easily. Never fear, I got out a file and took out some of the inside edge of the post holes, and now it fits on easily. I love how adjustable everything is, however, using the allen wrenches to adjust intonation is rather a pain. Not as easy as the TOM/AOM style. However, I needed this to help using the whammy bar and boy does it deliver—super smooth rollers. It feels way more comfortable to palm mute as well.

I have been using Schaller roller TOM style bridges for years. I recently used one on one of my Bella F-Bomb models and had issues, so I purchsed one of these locking roller bridges to try from Stew Mac. It arrived quickly, had more adjustability, was more robust and imho looked much better. I now have a new go to roller TOM style bridge. The price was good and it arrived fast. If you want a quality piece that won’t hurt your wallet, give this one a try.

When I got it I just remove the Stock Bridge. Then I place the new roller Bridge right on the stock Bridge posts. Next I pulled the bridge as far back as it would go on the lower strings and set the set screws then I pushed the bridge as far forward as it'll go on the treble strings. I set the set screws tight but not real tight so I don't mess up the threads on the stock Bridge posts. Then I made sure that I like the action where it was and proceeded to check the intonation which was surprisingly pretty close. So much so I'm leaving it alone for now. I would like to install the the bushings and the studs that came with the new roller Bridge because they're really nice and beefy. But right now I just want to play. Again I can't believe I didn't have to mess with that bridge to get the intonation set right.
