Original ABR-1 Tune-o-matic Bridge

The original, not a look-alike. This is the genuine bridge, from the manufacturer who makes the originals.

Manufactured since the 1950s, this Tune-o-matic bridge is 100% true to the original.

The brass saddles are supplied without notches, for custom string spacing in your shop. The adjustable intonation screws are held by a retainer wire. Knurled height adjustment thumbwheels and threaded mounting posts are included.

  • String spread 2-1/32"
  • Saddle radius 12"
  • Post spacing 2-29/32"
  • Post threads 6-32 x 1-1/16"
About bridge & tailpiece measurements
Bridge and Tailpiece Measurements Snippet

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.
