Perfect saddle height...

By

Verified Buyer


The back edge of this model comes up higher so that the adjustment screws don't form too much of an angle when at the perfect height.

Althiouh the included screws are very soft and distort when installed, the bridge is just the ticket for hard tail builds. Be sure to drill correct diameter pilot holes! I used a harder screw to cut my threads then installed the included screws lubed with beeswax...worked great!

The first package (Hard Tail Bridge, top loader) got lost somewhere after five weeks I called from the Netherlands and Matt was on the phone and he took action right away, send off another bridge which I received within 5 days :) Thanks Matt !
I have been a Customer already for many years and I am very satisfied with the effort taken by StewMac to do the best they can for their Customers.

Keep up the good work and God bless you all !

cheers,
AJ

By and far the nicest quality generic top-load bridge I've worked with. Very sturdy, high mass style saddles great for resonance/sustain & saddle screws stay where you set them. I did have to mod saddles so strings don't drag across back-end (filed out notches) - that's just my preference (otherwise I'd give it full 5 stars). There are plenty of inexpensive top-loaders out there - this one is notably better quality; thicker, more solid, screw mechanisms function well. Happy to recommend for upgrade or project!

While doing a set-up with this bridge, I lost one of the little saddle screws. I emailed StewMac and asked if I could buy one to replace it, as I'd dropped the thing and lost it. I was clear that it was my fault, not theirs, but after just emailing to ask if I could buy a new screw, they immediately sent a whole new saddle as a replacement, for free. And the bridge works great. A+.

I had to sand the bottom to make it flat.
The saddles are a soft material and dull the tone.

Poor design and components

This is the first time I've been really disappointed with a Golden Age product. I probably should have read all the reviews before purchasing. As others have pointed out, the strings hit the intonation adjustment screws when they feed through. Also, the height adjustment screws are all the same length so they can end up protruding quite a bit on lower action strings, making palm muting uncomfortable. Most hardtail bridges I've used have different length set screws to compensate for this. I'm going to have to modify or replace a fair amount of the components to make this bridge acceptable. I expected better from StewMac.
