Be aware that the saddles are not meant to be removed, so don't count on being able to flip them for more intonation range. Also the string slots are very shallow, so with 10 guage strings, I had trouble keeping them in the slots given the break angle on my guitar.
You can pay 5 times this price for a zinc Nashville bridge. in my opinion you won't find a significantly better zinc bridge, assuming the dimensions work on your guitar. using this on a Peerless Gigmaster Jazz to replace the OEM ABR-1 that has an annoying buzz. the Gotoh casting is high quality and for my money works better than the original. you will probably want to file and dress the little micro-notches on the saddles as somebody else said.
fit on my epi lp standard pro.. intonation great
Drop in replacement for Ibanez AF floating bridge. Quality fit and finish, and a bargain. Shallow saddle slots, so be prepared with your Hosco nut slot files from Philadelphia Luthiers!
This is a good quality bridge, a little bulky for my liking, but one thing that I didn’t like is after installing the bridge I noticed it made my guitar dark sounding in a way that I didn’t like after that I ended up removing it
I used the ABM M8 to smooth 4mm conversion posts to put this Nashville bridge on an Epiphone, and it was a perfect fit. The saddles were notched, but only slightly, so I cut deeper notches myself. I wanted to turn a couple of the saddles around for better intonation, but I couldn't figure out how to take it apart, so I left it alone (it's not the same as other Gibson-style Nashville bridges where the saddles are easy to remove).
