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.

Could be improved

By

Verified Buyer


Big improvement in intonation from the stock aluminum alloy bridge. The bridge pieces have way too much wiggle in them and they slip out of intonation frequently, I'm going to try some non-hardening lock-tite on them. The adjustment screw threads are a sloppy fit inside the bridge piece and are thus imprecise to set. The design could use some simple improvement.

Could be better

The bridge pieces tend to drift because the screw threads jiggle. The slotted screws are awkward to turn and phillips heads would be better. The wood base as expected needs to sanded for a good contact fit to the guitar arch top.

Perfect fit!

By

Verified Buyer


Bought this for my newly acquired Peerless Wizard hollow body to replace the factory rosewood bridge which was compensated for a wound G. Perfect fit with no modifications other than flipping the E saddles to give some extra adjustment (longer low and shorter high E). Guitar now intonates well up the neck and sustains better than before. One tiny burr on the outside edge right under where my palm rests, but a quick hit with a file took care of that. Recommended!

Can't go wrong with this. Your tone will improve vs the stock wooden bridge. I'm glad I made the switch. I have an Epiphone Joe Pass.

Improved sound

Got this to replace a wooden bridge on a hollow body jazz guitar with intonation problems. Sound and intonation were improved. The metal saddles brought out the volume and tone in the guitar.

Rattles like stock

Had the bridge installed at guitar center and the saddles rattle just like my previous one. Would not recommend.

Easy Installation

By

Verified Buyer


Put this bridge on an Eastman 372. Installed this unit exactly in the location of the original ebony bridge. Except for string height adjustment to match the ebony bridge tuning was spot on, I was amazed. It changed the character of the guitars tone to a brighter tone which I did not like, it made the tone too harsh for my taste. Replaced the original bridge and saved this Tune-o-Matic for future use on another project. For Jazz tone this is not the ticket for a purist but it is a great item for those searching for more versatility on a hollow body Jazz guitar.
