TonePros SS1 Standard Locking Studs

About This Item

Improved stability and sustain!
Retrofit your wraparound bridge or stop tailpiece for better tone and sustain!

The top of each stud tightens down for solid contact. Your bridge or tailpiece will no longer lean, resulting in more stability and improved string energy transfer. Threaded bushings and wrench are included with each set.

TonePros SS1 Standard Locking Studs feature:
  • 5/16-24 SAE threaded posts
  • Locking functionality utilizing stud-top threading into stud bottom
  • Standard, Gibson-sized stud tops
  • Brass studs for full, rich tone

  • Use an 11mm drill bit to install the bushings.

    "Real innovations. TonePros studs remove the play inherent in bridges and tailpieces that rest on threaded studs. This ensures especially good coupling."—Dan Erlewine

    Solid coupling for better sustain
    Improved bridge/tailpiece stability
    More precise, lasting intonation
    Won't fall off during restringing!

    Just what the new Gibson Les Paul Special needed.

    By

    Verified Buyer


    The folks at Gibson seem to have moved the bridge studs on the new Gibson Les Paul Special about 3/16" closer to the neck than their custom shop version and original specials, which, to get good intonation forces you to move the bridge far back on the studs, which allows the bridge to tilt forward. Combination of the Golden Age Low-profile Wraparound Bridge and TonePros SS1 Standard Locking Studs take care of the issue. Very pleased.

    A Five becasue....

    I bought mine to replace the studs on the epic Gibson Firebird Zero! They don't fit, you will need metric, I have returned mine to get the metric but I am giving these a five because I know they should solve the issue.

    It fixed a difficult problem

    I have a heavily modified 1959 Les Paul Junior. Lots of routing for a homemade tremolo. This product allowed me to securely mount a non tremolo tail piece in spite of the previous modifications. A godsend to be sure!

    Recommended by a Bridge Manufacturer

    I picked these up on the recommendation of the manufacturer of a bridge I was installing as an upgrade to a guitar I was working on. I’m super pleased with the quality and the Tone difference paired with the new bridge.

    Pricey but makes a difference

    These are great and all the talk about helping sustain with a locked down tailpiece are correct. I notice a difference and having a locked down tailpiece when changing strings is a bonus!

    Nice Improvement

    These really tighten up a stopbar or wraparound. The wrench is a hassle, but still, better tightness, better tone

    Worth the effort

    By

    Verified Buyer


    These may seem a bit expensive at first blush, but having them in hand is another thing entirely. Very nicely designed, and effective especially in concert with a lightweight tailpiece. I will add my voice to the choir to not over-tighten, and follow the well-written instructions. A worth-while upgrade on my LP Junior.

    Great upgrade

    This one is a great upgrade for any project, but seems a little fragile. Just be careful when installing and adjusting!

    Great Upgrade

    Subjectively, these seem to have improved tone and sustain a bit on my LP Standard. But, unquestionably, they are worth the money if only to keep the tailpiece from falling off and dinging something (or itself!) when changing strings. I'm seriously considering the companion locking bridge for the same reason.

    is a fantastic idea, but all the stuff should be made of steel, not brass!
