This bridge is OEM on many Japanese made guitars. I have bought several in the various color choices to replace old, sagging, corroded bridges. For the pirce they can't be beaten. Already has the 12 inch radius most of the guitars require, unlike the Gotoh, which requires you to file the saddles to 12".
I have a Burny Les paul from the 80´s and it´s original bridge was bent producing fret buzz. I bought locally a gotoh replacement, but altought it fitted nicely it was flatter radius and did not like it much. I found this bridge and is the exact same bridge made in japan my burny came with.I´m really happy with it!
I wish I could send a photo with this review so you could see for yourself. The saddle screws on an ABR-1 have a recess for the spring and the bridge to fit in. This recess positions the saddle screw so it cannot move forward or backward. The screws on this bridge are machined with a very large, almost twice as long as it should be, recess on the screw. The saddle does not maintain position. The screw slides back and forth changing the intonation as you play. This makes intonation impossible. I'm going to check on the return policy and try to replace it with something else. The thread pitch is actually M4x.75, not M4x.4. The thumscrews are thin enough where they will fit M4x.7 threaded posts because the pitch is so close to the same. I like the thumbscrews. The bridge is junk.
