    Metric Locking Studs

    Posted by Zachary Wells on Mar 31, 2020

    Ordered these for my sg special as it had the infamous tilted bridge from the loose tolerances on the post, bad enough it gouged into the round part of the slot.

    Anyways these worked great, fit right in on the epiphone, not to long or short. Feels more solid than the old post, easy to use too and it’s really made a difference. It almost feels a little more responsive and a more solid high end, the e could get the sitar effect going at times and seems to be acting completely like it should now. Also helped intonation a bit.

    PLT was also helpful with my questions and quick on the responses and shipped fast, even with everything going on. I’d definitely order these or anything else needed through them.

    Thread portion larger than PRS SE studs

    Posted by Luis Olvera on Jan 30, 2019

    I bought a pair of these attempting to fix the angled (wraparound) tailpiece issue on my PRS SE custom semihollow... the thread fits fine but the threaded portion of this studs is about 3/8" larger than the original therefore it will not allow setting the bridge for low action.

    Anyway I will look forward for a future version with shorter threaded portion. :(

    The quality is very good, I rated 3 stars based on my Customer Support inquiry before I bought these.

    lock down wrap around

    Posted by charles chriscaden on Oct 28, 2018

    Used these to lock a warp around bridge that seemed to lift at the rear. Worked perfectly. Chrome was finished great;lock keeps the bridge tight. Highly recommended!
