About This Item

A direct replacement for most Tune-o-matic style bridges!
Schaller's unique variation of the Tune-o-matic bridge features low-friction roller saddles for smoother tuning and tremolo action.

These intonation-adjustable brass saddles allow adjustable string spread, and are angled slightly for correct alignment with the offset mounting studs and threaded bushings. The bridge can be used with standard Gibson® guitar tailpieces.

(355.60mm)
Post spacing
2-29/32"
(73.82mm)
Stud threads

Use a 1/4" drill bit to install the bushings.

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.

The quality is good

This Schaller Roller Bridge fit easily on my Les Paul. I did disassemble and reassemble the bridge, which was difficult and time consuming, in order to have the heads of the adjustment screws face the stop tailpiece so as to ease access to them when intonating. All of the machining on this bridge was well done so all of the adjustments were easy to make.

I purchased this bridge a few months ago and it came with M5 and M8 posts. Now only the M5 posts are included. Love the sound of the bridge on my previous install. Still looking for a source for the M8 studs for my current project.

This Schaller Roller Bridge is nice! Precision manufactured and beautifully plated (gold).
The adjustable string spacing in my opinion is a huge plus. I have not experienced any tone loss or rattle with this bridge.
The Schaller Roller Bridge was recommended by StewMac customer service and has proven itself to be a very high quality upgrade.

I purchased this as part of a "tuning stability" upgrade to a new Epiphone Johnny A.
The guitar was fantastic on all counts except that it could not hold tune.
Installation:
The body studs were too small in diameter to be used in the Johnny A so I popped out the originals, drilled and tapped the for the larger 5mm height adjusting screws.
After bridge installation, the gap between the top of the body studs and the bottom of the adjusting screws was measured for correct string height and solid brass spacers were made and installed to increase stability of the bridge. This was done to combat the steep break angle of the strings (from bridge to Bigsby tensioner bar).
The Bigsby tensioner bar was replaced with one that has roller bearings instead of the original nylon bushings. I had to make a new axle and new nylon axle support bushings for the tensioner bar due to a metric to inch conversion.
The last step was to install a new Tusq XL nut.
Not a whole lot of work and a minimum investment to completely eliminate a small problem with a super nice instrument.

The Schaller Roller Bridge STM.

The only disappointing thing about it is that it only comes with one size insert post, but with a little ingenuity you can overcome that as I did, but you have to make sure all other measurements are correct, the only reason I purchased it was because I can space my strings a little further apart, and that is what I do, thank you !

Nicely machined and finished roller bridge with adjustable string spacing allowing proper alignment of strings over pickups and solid bridge to body contact for no loss of sustain with the rollers. Excellent item.

Nice Hardware

I've changed both my Les Paul and my SG to the Schaller roller bridge. The tune-o-matic bridges have a sharp edge which is uncomfortable for my palm. I think it makes them stay in tune better too.

Schaller products never disappoint. Installing a Bigsby on a PRS Starla X and this is a welcome addition. Thanks SM!

A great idea...

By

Verified Buyer


I liked the idea of this bridge, especially being able to adjust the string spacing. But in practice it didn't work for me. I play aggressively with my fingers, not a pick, so it may be more my fault than the design, but the treble E string continually skips off of the roller. I'll go back to the standard Adjust-o-matic bridge.

Perfect Replacement, better than original

I broke my bridge on my '64 Gold Top after many hard playing years. This replacement fit perfectly, although I did use the included studs and why not? Anyway, I have two more LP's and a Cort (LP clone) that will be receiving the same bridge in the next few months. Thanks for providing quality parts for our instruments....StewMac ya'll ROCK
