These conversions post will allow you to install a US ABR-1 bridge on an Epiphone and other import guitars that were originally equipped with the large post Nashville bridge. Now you can have the same looks as the original vintage Gibson guitars! These posts will screw directly into the original body anchors and leave you with 6-32 threaded posts like the original ABR-1.
Can be purchased with or without thumbwheels.
Check out 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 posts are found on most Epiphone and the better quality import guitars. Some inexpensive guitars coming from China are using smaller 6mm(M6) threaded bridge posts. This includes many of the fake Gibson guitars...we do not sell conversion posts or a bridge that will fit these guitars.

works great, looks vintage, works with the ABR bridges perfectly.
Easy upgrade, well worth it.
I had tried another vendor's conversion posts but oddly the top section where the thumbwheel screws go was slightly thinner than it should have been - not thin enough to affect function of the thumbwheels but enough that the bridge had some rock to it which I definitely did not like. The posts on these were nice & tight.
Works as advertised. I used this to add a Gibson ABR-1 to my Epiphone Noel Gallagher Riviera.
These are a perfect fit for Epiphones if you want to upgrade to Gibson ABR-1 bridges! Great quality too!
Added these to a new Epi 59 Les Paul, along with the ABR1 bridge from here, the difference was immediate and definite improvement of tone.
