     Product Description

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

    These conversion posts 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 look as the original vintage Gibson guitars!  These posts 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. 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 7.9 mm (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 post or a bridge that will fit these guitars.

    1. I finally have a Gotoh tune o matic on my Epiphone Les Paul. 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Apr 13, 2018

      These work great! The tolerances could be just a little snugger but I didn't change the bushings in the guitar so it could have more to do with that then the conversion posts. All in all, I 'm happy!

    2. Great for waking up your import 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Apr 29, 2017

      These have been the heart to bringing the true tone out of my import collection. I've installed two sets with an ABR-1 bridge from Philadelphia Luthier Supply on a first run Korean Tokai Love Rock and a replica '59 that was made by a Japanese builder. Both guitars were night and day once installed. I honestly don't know if it's the metals available overseas or not, but the guitars are extremely resonant now and besides that, they just look better! For the cost, it's probably the most cost effective upgrade you can do to your import besides pickups.

    3. Miracle Workers! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Feb 6, 2017

      I am building an LP kit. The body is already drilled for inserts to mount the bridge studs. I want to mount a Gibson ABR -1 bridge. These studs screw right into the inserts that came with the kit. My ABR-1 bridge sits on them very nicely. These saved me a ton of time.

    4. Perfect fit ABR-1 Conversion posts 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Oct 16, 2016

      These fit perfectly on my Epiphone Les Paul Standard to convert the original post sockets to fit an ABR-1 style bridge.

    5. For what they do, they work very well 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Jul 17, 2014

      I have a set in chrome and a set in gold. Both fit my import guitar bridge bushings well and were extremely easy to install. I can't vouch for any noticeable sonic/sustain differences from the original metric studs, but it looks more "Gibsony"! The price point also make them an affordable modification to consider. Of course you need to buy the appropriate bridge as well.
