Gibson USA owners: You can now upgrade your stock zinc die cast Nashville bridge with a high quality CNC machined all steel bridge. The bridge body is machined from a single piece of steel. When compared to the standard zinc diecast guitar bridge, steel adds presence and lots of punch to the tone. Your guitar's sound will have nice balance but with a litte more upper and mid chime.
The Pinnacle bridge features intonation and bridge height adjustment with the included allen wrench. No more marred screw heads. The Pinnacle bridge is not a locking bridge.

As a package, TOM, talipiece, 1 1/2 posts,all in nickel steel.I replaced the steel with titanium saddles off a 2015 LP studio. On my 2013 Midtown Custom,solid carved out hollow body flat top. Steel saddles sound original awesome. With Titanium saddles the higher overtones seem to be able to bloom out. I Wish Philadelphia Luthier would offer the Ti saddle replacements as an option on their high end CNC parts.
I got this to replace the caste pot metal tone pros bridge that came on my 2016 Les Paul Standard after one of the screws to adjust the saddle snapped in half, causing me to have to buy a new bridge. This bridge is much heavier and has a nice feel to it. I can't really say how it improved the sound of the guitar because any perceived chance may be psychosomatic, but I can say that it is surely an upgrade on a physical point of view. Also, the hex screws to adjust the intonation is far and away an amazing addition. If for nothing else, that's the reason to get this and put it on your LP. I should note, too, that it also fits on a SG Standard.
Seems flawlessly machined, spacing of the notches is spot on for the '79 The Paul I've tried it on so far. Everything I would expect from the change from a zinc to steel bridge and saddles (a bit more acoustic volume, a bit tighter lows, more explosive attack, etc.) No rattling and adjustments are all smooth as can be and everything seems to have stayed right where I put it in the month or so I've been using it.
US made is a plus for me as well.
It's expensive, but options seem awfully short if you want a steel ToM. Money no object, I'd put one of these on most of my fixed tailpiece+ToM+HB equipped guitars. I'd love to try one of these w/ titanium saddles...
