TonePros AVR2G ABR-1 Tune-o-matic Bridge with G Formula Saddles

About This Item

Upgrade your ABR-1 with TonePros. One of the electric guitar's easiest upgrades, TonePros' locking functionality instantly improves any stock bridge system. For most guitars, it's a drop in replacement. The TonePros AVR2G is designed for vintage, ABR1-style guitars and comes with notched ivory-colored nylon saddles for instant installation. The gold version has unnotched saddles for custom installations.

This bridge is loaded with saddles using a special proprietary formula based on the original vintage Nylon 66 saddle material found in guitars of the late 50s and early 60s. This new material retains the tone of the original Nylon 66 saddles, but adds other hi-tech ingredients that provide a new "slippery" surface. This prevents string breakage and provides superior durability, preventing saddle wear and the breakage problems of earlier Graphite materials

What's the easiest, most simple way to improve any electric guitar? Upgrading to top-quality hardware! Increasing sustain and improving tuning stability, TonePros' patented locking functionality makes guitars come alive with rich, vibrant harmonics, transferring more resonance from strings to hardware to guitar, causing superior overall tone. Simply put, TonePros' locking hardware makes the entire guitar ring as one solid piece.

Includes the thumbwheels, posts, and wrench.

  • String spread 2-1/16"
    (52mm)
  • Saddle radius 12"
    (304.80mm)
  • Post spacing 2-29/32"
    (73.5mm)
  • Post threads 6-32
    TonePros AVR2G features:
  • Notched ivory-color nylon saddles—soft enough to reduce string breakage, but won't break or disintegrate (gold version is unnotched)
  • Closed-bottom construction
  • Zamak body with brass saddles and brass posts for rich, vintage-accurate tone
  • Adjustable with flathead screwdriver

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.

Transformed my guitar

My Gibson ES-175 just got better with this bridge. I installed it on the original rosewood base and set it up for height and intonation. The solid sound is perfect, I was surprised by how much I like it. Whatever the G formula is, it works.

Adds a vintage vibe and tone

I installed this on a Gibson 2019 '61 Original Series SG w/Sidepull Vibrola, to cop the vibe and tone of a real '61. I couldn't use the included studs and thumbwheels, as mine has the larger suds and inserts in the body. The original ABR-1 bridges had the studs directly screwed into the body..At any rate, all I had to do is use the Gibson studs and the bridge just dropped right in. Even though Gibson's mounting of this bridge is not historically correct, it is certainly a more stable setup. The locking feature on the Tone Pros bridge is a nice touch. The nylon saddles do take off a small bit of treble, but it sounds great to me.
