This bridge is a bit of an upgrade over the ones that come on the epiphones. The tilt was bad on mine, making the big screw heads dig into the metal on the ears, really beating it up, catching on the worm grooves if you tried to shorten intonation. I put this on to replace it with some metric locking studs and it’s made for a really tight fit, just wide enough to get it to pop on. I’m not sure if it would fit onto normal metric studs as it seems a little thicker.
It also intonates a little bit better, could just be a small variance between strings but the g comes in a lot closer, if you compare between the normal epi ones and this, you’ll see the g has a nicer step back, and the d a tad bit more forward. It’s gotten pretty close with pure nickel 11s, the e being sharp 2 cents, a flat by 2, the d is pretty much on, g sharp by 2, b on, and e about 1 cent flat. Way close enough for rock n roll.
I found the part to be very nice, and the fit was perfect. Tight fit on studs with no wobble like the most others. Very nice bridge especially considering the cost.
I replaced a genuine Gibson bridge in chrome with this one. They are identical in every way except for the finish. This is a very beautiful and high quality item. Simply the best.
