     Product Description

    • Conversion Posts with thumbwheels for import guitars with large posts
    • Made in USA
    • Nickel Plated steel posts
    • 2- fine knurled brass thumbwheels 
    • 2- M8x1.25 to SAE 6-32 conversion posts**
    • Total Length is 1 3/8" (35mm)

    These conversions post will allow you to install a US ABR-1 bridge on an Epiphone and other import guitar that was originally equipped with the large post Nashville bridge.   Now you can have the same looks as the original vintage Gibson guitars!  These post will screw directly into the original body anchors and leave you with 6-32 threaded post like the original ABR-1.   Install the included thumbwheels and then your favorite US made ABR-1 bridge.   Checkout our store for a selection of US ABR-1 bridges that will fit these conversion posts.

    **Please check the diameter of your original posts before ordering.  The diameter of the threaded section of your bridge posts needs to measure 7.9mm for these to fit.  The 7.9mm(M8) diameter bridge post are found on most Epiphone and the better quality import guitars.  Some inexpensive guitars coming from China are using a smaller 6mm(M6) threaded bridge posts.  This includes many of the fake Gibson guitars...we do not sell a conversion posts or a bridge that will fit these guitars.

    2. As advertised! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Jan 6, 2017

      Wow, they just drop right in.
      I was at the point where I was gonna drill and dowel my
      Bridge mount holes and start from scratch to get an ABR to work on my Asian LP.
      I had done several internet searches looking for a fix
      And after an exhaustive search ,I Happened upon this little
      Conversion set. What would've been a full days project
      Turned into about 45 seconds.
      Stoked with how they look and how everything turned out.

    3. Epi Les Paul with Fishman Powerbridge 4 Star Review

      Posted by on Aug 30, 2016

      I used these to convert a Samick-era Epi Les Paul for use with a Fishman Powerbridge (piezo). It works, but setting the height within the bushing might be troublesome if the bushing pockets are drilled significantly deeper than the bushing itself. As you raise the height of the bridge with the thumbwheels, the studs will also thread further down into the bushings. In any case, it's workable. A little purple Loctite 222 or similar thread locker between the stud and bushing would solve that after you get the necessary height relative to the bushing worked out. It just might take a little more work that you were expecting.

    5. Great replacement for Nashville bridge 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Feb 20, 2016

      I have a Norlin-era ES-335 which is a great guitar but the screws froze in the Nashville bridge and I couldn't intonate the guitar, so I got this adapter for an ABR-1 bridge and it works and sounds and looks great. I'm putting one on a newer LP '59 reissue as well. Remember that if you are going to replace the bridge on a Tunomatic be prepared to create the string grooves in the new saddles.

    7. Works! 5 Star Review

      Perfect fit, nice quality and fair price.

    8. Just what the Doctor ordered 5 Star Review

      Posted by on May 15, 2015

      Easy ordering, fast shipping and exactly what I needed. Works just as described!! The only problem was on my end with the 8-32 bridge hole vs this 6-32 post, easy fix, I just added a bushing inside my saddle post hole and this 6-32 post fit right in with zero play. Would definitely order again if needed from Philadelphia Luthier!

    9. Great idea! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Dec 4, 2014

      These conversion posts work out really nicely to get that authentic "Gibson" bridge stud look. Too bad they don't come in black or the smaller diameter metric size or you would have all options covered. I had to "Sharpie" a chrome set to black to put on an EpiLimited Edition Joe Perry Les Paul that had all black hardware. It worked well- other than all the black ink on my fingers from handling the posts too soon!

    10. They work! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Sep 2, 2014

      These conversion posts fit very well and the stud spacing fit the new ABR-1 bridge as well. I'm happy with the choice. Only downside was that I had to "paint" a set black to go on a guitar with black hardware since they don't come in black.
