Possibly the best locking Nashville bridge made for Gibson Les Paul guitars! The post and locking cap both have a rounded surface that mates perfectly to the round receptacle on the aluminum body. Prior to locking the bridge, the pivoting connection allows the bridge to self-center and tilt for proper bridge alignment. When locked down, this connection will have a larger contact path for better tone transmissions from the bridge to the guitar's body!
The tonal benefit of titanium saddles:
- More presence out of your guitar
- More volume – you can notice the volume jump on the guitar acoustically
- More clarity – notes will come out clearer and have a quicker response without being harsh on the high end or thin
- More sustain
- No change massive EQ shift in your guitar – No extra midrange bump as with brass or scooped mids as with aluminum – just increase in all frequencies of the guitar across the board.
- Tight, clear low end
The Pinnacle locking TOM bridge uses a 2.5mm Allen wrench for bridge height adjustment. First, make sure the cap is loose using a straight slot screwdriver then insert the Allen wrench in the center of the post for easy height adjustment.

I installed this on a 1993 Gibson Les Paul Custom Plus who's original bridge had collapsed. The posts on the gibson were ever so slightly too far spaced to have the new locking post fit the new bridge but the original posts had enough space on them to fit it. The change in tone on the guitar was wonderful and it plays better than ever now. Would most definitely recommend.
Very nice. Makes a difference on sustain and bridge pickup tone.
Sounds great on my Les Paul, it gives a more crisp sound. Also more clear on the high end notes. Very happy with it!
Good value compared to other locking TOM bridges. The slots in the saddles have sharp edges - a few strokes with folded piece of 800 G wet paper removed them. The locks on top of the adjuster post must be removed before the thumbwheel is turned otherwise the threads on the top of the adjuster post can strip. The titanium saddles result in a more balanced volume from string to string. The bridge fits the post spacing on a Gibson SG Standard without modification - no re-drilling required.
I bought a bridge for one of my les paul's that was taken off a new SG HP, I liked it so much I wanted one for my other LP, I bought this one because it was the same aluminum/titanium materials but at a better price, upon recieving I found it was better than just a lower price, it's the exact same bridge and at a fraction of the price. I will tell all my gear head friends.
I did exactly what the other reviewer did, I bought this bridge to harvest the titanium saddles. This entire bridge is less expensive than just a set of titanium saddles from a different online parts and tools retailer! The saddles are great, I love that they're etched with the string name on the bottom so you don't have to keep track of which saddle is which, you can just check the bottom (although it's easy to tell from the machined string notches anyway). I put the titanium saddles for the 3 wound strings on a different bridge, and I've noticed an amazing bump in clarity and presence from those strings! If you've ever had a guitar where the unwound strings sounded nice and bright but the wound strings sounded muddy, these saddles will fix that problem!
Purchase this just to harvest the titanium saddles! The saddles are CNC machined and have laser etched string names on them. I used them to put in another Pinnacle bridge purchase here. They will never rust. The Customer Service is the best at Philadelphia Luthiers! Fast shipping and Always perfectly packed. You even get a couple of their picks with the order!
