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.

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.

Fits perfectly into my Jaguar. Had my tech install the bushings for a more sturdy approach. Plays great, with awesome sustain. Highly recommended for upgrading your Fender offsets.

Nice Bridge but poor color

The bridge itself is nice but the gold is not very gold. Unlike Gotoh or Gibson.

Review for Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge.

By

Verified Buyer


I like the fact that the saddles are not slotted. I have been building some guitars with non-standard nut widths and these allow me to control the string spacing. As always
the quality is superb.

Strongly recommend this product.

A good,well made,reliable component that "drops straight in" on relevant Gibson instrument (Les Paul).
Will definitely use again.

Just what this old 335 needed. Replaced the bent and corroded abr-1 and now the guitar looks beautiful, sustains for days and plays in tune.
