6 SADDLE BRIDGE FOR BIGSBY
- Customer Reviews
A vast improvement over the original Bigsby®, compensated bridge. This unit allows each string to be fully intonated and features a rocking action which actually helps to keep the guitar in tune. Comes complete with mounting posts and body inserts. Chrome finish.
Centre to centre stud spacing 76mm
E to E string spacing - 56mm
String pitch - 11.2mm which is adjustable because of the saddle knurls
Mounting post body insert - 11mm diameter, 24mm length.
The saddles are not set correctly for a Gibson guitar. The spacing has more to do with Fender. The outer strings are hard up against the inner grub screws on their respective saddles which makes it hard to settle them properly. The harmonic adjustment screws are set in a straight line (as opposed to following a radius) which makes height adjustment a bit of a joke -My fingerboard is a 10 inch radius which put the G saddle set really high (which had the effect of locking the harmonic adjustment screw) and the E 1st really low (which meant there was not enough string tension to hold the saddle down for good contact - don't forget the string is hard up against the height screw). After much fiddling I finally got it working - and it sounds good. At the end of the day - no cigar - needs work.
