The professional adjustable wraparound with a wide intonation range.
The ABM3024 is machined from a block of Bell Brass. It sounds and "sings" excellent. It will enchance your guitar by giving it a lively tone and lots of sustain.
Using the adjustable saddles, you can achieve a perfect intonation. In addition, using the 2 allen screws you can adjust the entire intonation range of the bridge. Due to the low height and wide intonation range, the bridge is compatible with both Gibson Melody Maker and LP Junior guitars.
The wraparound ABM 3024 can be used for both an angled and straight installations.

Bought to replace the stock wrap-around on a 2018 Les Paul Special. You'll need a long screwdriver with the blade sides filed to the width of the screw slot to avoid damage to the saddle adjuster screws as they are quite snug. Fit and finish are excellent, but you'll give up a bit of sustain compared to the stock Gibson wrap tailpiece / bridge, in exchange for accurate intonation. The upside is that the bridge will sit fully onto the posts - there's so much adjustment in the saddle travel that the hex screws were not needed to pull the bridge back. Unlike the stock bridge, this doesn't tilt toward the nut and makes snug contact with the posts. It's expensive, not as cool looking as the stock wrap-around, but the guitar intonates much better up and down the neck, even though the stock bridge wasn't too bad. I'd buy it again and I'd buy it over competitive offerings from Gotoh etc.
Sorry about my last review! Phila. Luthier Tool & Supply made things right, replacing the anomaly I received, and I'm thrilled. This piece is every bit the exquisite German machining and lustrous nickel plating I expected! Replaced the stock bar on my Les Paul Special, now I can adjust the intonation, and it's a pleasure. The piece is exceptional, and the service was too!
I apologize for my last review. Philadelphia LT&S stepped up and made things right! My anomaly was replaced with the real thing, and I'm impressed. This is the exeptional piece of German machining that I had in mind, with the fine, lustrous plating that was expected. Replaced the stock wraparound bar on my Les Paul Special, and made it a fine instrument that is very stable and easy to adjust intonation. Worth every penny!
A shout out to my man Kenny @ Philadelphia Luthier!
While this bridge looks and fits well, 5 of the 6 saddle adjustments are somehow bound, as if cross threaded in manufacture. A bit of oil and a LOT of screw turning finally got things working. Not thrilled with that, but now it works. It might also be how rough the plating is where the saddles are meant to glide. Not thrilled, especially at the price point!
This is the finest wraparound bridge that I've found. The fit and finish is excellent and they are built like a Swiss watch, No slop in the saddle adjustment and the mounting studs fit snugly in the slots. I'm not often impressed by guitar parts, but these wraparounds are exceptional.
