- Lightweight Aluminum US Nashville Tune-o-Matic bridge
- Made in the USA
- Cast Aluminum body, zinc die-cast saddles, and brass bridge post/anchors
- Includes studs and anchors
- String-specific notched saddles
- 2"(50.8mm) E to e spacing
- 12" saddle radius
- Direct fit for USA Gibson guitars
- M5 x .8 threaded posts with 5mm diameter top section - **included posts must be used with bridge

The lightweight aluminum body weighs only 1.09 oz(30.7 grams) compared to the standard zinc diecast body at 1.87 oz(52.9 grams). Many believe that the aluminum tailpiece produces a better tone than the standard zinc diecast version...why not try an aluminum bridge!
These are a direct replacement for a Gibson Nashville bridge as long as you use the include bridge posts. You do not have to remove the body anchors...they can be reused.

this is an excellent looking and sounding ABR bridge. I use it to make my Nashville type tuneomatic guitar sound more vintage and authentic, and lower weight is nice too.
Excellent improvement to my Epiphone Les Paul Custom, great sound improvement on a neck that now feels more comfortable.
Replacing a different tune-o-matic type bridge on my Jazzmaster parts build. Pretty cool. Pre-slotted very nicely and it's light weight. Seems to keep tune really well so far. I'm going to try flipping the low string saddles so I get a little extra room for intonation if I want to drop tune. Interestingly, the posts drop right into the threaded bushings.
No more dull, buzzing tone. Brought a nice airy openness to my Les Paul. Big improvement over the stock zinc bridge.
Gives my Les Paul a more crisp sound on the strings. More clear on the high end strings. Really happy with it!
I inadvertently ordered the wrong product so this review is based on a brief glance at the bridge and studs......the items seemed well made and had I ordered the correct bridge I would not have hesitated to use this......thanks for the easy return. RR
This is an excellent bridge, it seems to be the exact same dimensions as a Gibson Nashville bridge, but substantially lighter. In my opinion, the ONE THING that's wrong with these are the saddles. You get an aluminum bridge, brass posts and bushings, but zinc saddles? If they made this with brass saddles, it would be absolutely perfect.
I have a dark sounding newer Les Paul classic. It has ABR-1 Bridge, the one that Gibson nerds love. It was dull , and no matter how I had it set up, would rattle and buzz. I bought this aluminum one, and the guitar now sings. It came alive. And in my opinion looks way better with the beefier Nashville type on there. The sound is crisp and pingy, not harsh at all. This was such an easy piece to make this guitar now great. Highly recommended.
Brought my 1996 Epiphone Broadway to life. The stock wooden bridge was rather dull/muted. This unit just dropped onto the bridge posts.
