Tune-o-Medic Bridge and Tailpiece Tools

About This Item

Installing, adjusting, and replacing Tune-o-matic guitar bridges and 'stop' tailpieces is daily work in busy guitar shops.

Our new Tune-o-Medic tools — the Bridge Jack, Post Tool and Stop Tailpiece Wrench — make the work faster and easier!

Sold individually or SAVE when you buy the set of all three tools.

Tune-o-Medic Bridge Jack
Adjust Tune-o-matic bridges quickly without loosening the strings — using the same tool Gibson used in their original Kalamazoo factory. Lift a Tune-o-matic with this jack and you can adjust the thumbscrews up or down freely, and without pressure from the strings you'll no longer damage the plating on the hardware.

With the Bridge Jack, you can even hold the guitar in the playing position and jack up the bridge with one hand while watching the 12th-fret action — when it looks right, spin the thumbwheel to hold that height.

The stainless steel Bridge Jack includes thick self-adhesive felt padding to help protect the guitar top. An extra pad and instructions are included.

Tune-o-Medic Post Tool
When Tune-o-matic bridge posts are bent, the bridge leans and intonation suffers. It becomes hard to turn the thumbwheels to set the bridge height, and the threaded posts may even be uncomfortable against the player's hand. The Post Tool makes it easy to remove, install or straighten these posts.

Interchangeable threaded brass inserts (6-32 thread for Gibson, and M4 x.7 thread for imports) snap into the Post Tool's handle. Simply thread the tool onto the post until it's flush against the thumbwheel, tighten the wheel against the tool, and hold the two together to turn the post for installation, removal, or height adjustment.

Instructions are included — we also include matching drill bits for correctly reinstalling the posts in new holes when needed.

Stop Tailpiece Wrench
The Stop Tailpiece Wrench has a thick screwdriver tip recessed into a smooth-walled socket that fits the 1/2" (12.70mm) diameter tailpiece stud snugly. The socket keeps the wrench centered, to protect the stud's plating and avoid accidents that could mar the guitar top. Made of tool steel, with a durable plastic handle. Our thanks to guitar techs Paul Verticchio and Jerry Barnstable for suggesting this tool.

Overall length is 7-3/4" (196.85mm). Inside diameter of the socket is 17/32" (13.49mm). This tool will work on tailpiece studs with 17/32" (13.49mm) maximum diameter.

Perfect tools for a difficult job

I have several guitars with Tune-o-Matic style bridges and adjustments to the bridge and stop tailpiece have always been a bit more troublesome and time-consuming. These have solved all of those problems. Great tools.

Great set of tools for working on any ABR-1 bridges or Nashville style bridges whether they are the "real thing" or oriental, makes life so much easier. A little pricey but you will have them for life. Recommended.

I used the tailpiece wrench and the bridge jack. They save a great deal of time and work extremely well.

 The right tool for the job.

Adjustment is SO much easier with this kit. Only downside was the screwdriver blade had a burr on both edges so it did not fit in the screw slot, hence only 4 stars. Once removed with a small file (2-3 minutes) it was perfect. Item was well packed and delivery was very quick. Great service. (4.8 stars really!)

Great Tool!

Makes quick work of small action adjustments on my Les Paul without the need to loosen the strings every time. HUGE time saver. Fits nicely in the storage compartment of the guitar case so I just leave it there. This is a "must have" for anyone with a tuneomatic bridge.

As always Stewmac products are well-made, of topnotch quality, and perfect for the job. I'd say about 10-20% overpriced, but everybody knows that already. It would be great to get a discount for teachers who are regularly setting their students guitars.

allows you to adjust the tailpiece without loosening the strings. The first time you use it you will wonder how you ever did without it.
