Replaced an ABR -1 Bridge on a 64 Gibson ES 335 Reissue. Drop in replacement, basically identical to Gibson stock bridge and the locking feature is great.
This bridge for exceeds the current Gibson ABR bridge. The manufacturing process here is first rate and the tolerances are EVERYTHING you could hope for. NO RATTLES. There is no need to get out the clear nail polish or thread lock that you will need for the stock Gibson bridge. And if I need to say it, all that nail polish and thread lock just dampens the bridge saddle - and this diminishes the sustain on the string, (easily noticeable on the plain strings).
The locking system here is very clever. The STEEL thumb wheels themselves are actually a closer thread tolerance than the US made steel thumbwheels that PT sells. And yep, I have purchased a pair of those and now regret it. Buy this locking ABR bridge, (you will have to notch and radius the nickel plated brass saddles), and you can thank me later for this review. It's everything and more than what you wanted in an ABR bridge, locking or otherwise.
