With this Historic Non-Wire ABR-1 Bridge, Gibson has re-created the famous non-wire bridge it used on its electric guitars until 1962-63. "GIBSON ABR-1" is featured in raised letters on the base of the bridge. The vintage bridge also includes unnotched saddles.

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.

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.

ABR non wire bridge

this is the exact same bridge my Gibson was shipped with except it’s new and perfect.
If you’re buying this bridge I suggest loosening each string before adjusting the intonation. This should keep the adjustment screws tight in their slots and negate future lifting or rattling.
