Tune-o-Matic Bridge ABR-1 Style for Gibson Guitars

This tune-o-matic bridge will fit a rarer breed of guitars, as it features a 74mm stud spacing. Depending on the guitar you may find this slightly odd spacing, and it can appear on Gibson, Epiphone, and various other LP-style guitar manufacturers. Made in the same factory as Wilkinson and Floyd Rose hardware, it has the same impeccable build standards as the original ABR-1 bridge, but comes in at a fraction of the price.

Saddle Retention Rings

This bridge utilises saddle retention rings, which prevents the dreaded saddle rattle that's a symptom of lesser bridges of this type. This significant improvement in design means that this bridge will offer a better playing platform, allowing all your notes to ring out to their true potential.

Tune-o-Matic Bridge Design

The Tune-o-Matic was created as a direct replacement to the Wraparound bridge, first appearing on the Gibson Super 400 guitar in 1953 before appearing on the Les Paul Custom the year following. Keeping some of the qualities of the original Wraparound, the idea behind its construction was to make the distance adjustable for all strings with individual saddles, whilst simultaneously creating a better break angle for the strings with the addition of the stop bar tailpiece.

Things to Note

This bridge has 4.2mm post holes to drop over 4mm posts. If you're wanting to upgrade a guitar with 6mm posts, such as an Epiphone, check out our BM012 for this purpose. Please also make certain you do not have a 'Nashville' style bridge, as these are slighty wider than the ABR-1. Our Nashville bridge for Gibson guitars can be found by searching for code BM015.

Les Paul Bridge

If your bridge features the 74mm stud spacing, then this is the one for you! This high quality bridge will fit a variety of guitars, but please check the images for dimensions before purchasing.
