Gotoh 201 on a Bronco
Iím modding a Bronco, and donít ordinarily change the bridge on my mods. But the two saddle bridge isnít working for me because of the inherent intonation problem.
I got a sweet deal on a Gotoh 201, which I had planned to put on my Tricked Out Squier P.
But what would happen if I put it on my Bronco? I know the string spacing is 17mm on the pony
and I believe the 201 is 19mm.
I will use this SQ MM 4 saddle bridge if the 201 is a bad idea:
You are better off with the stock bridge than
the wider spacing.
I've got a 201 on my Bronco. The neck handles the spacing fine.
Here's a thread about how to mount it.
All the best,
Bobster, Thanks for the info. How about the action? Can you get it low enough with the 201?
To answer your question, yes. It can get low enough. My action is actually really good.
But what I don't remember, is if I shimmed the neck or not. I'm pretty certain I put about a 1/2" wide strip of business card at the end of the pocket toward the bridge, I don't have a problem with shimming the neck (if it's okay from the factory, it's okay with me).
All the best,
I put the Gotoh on my Tricked Out Squier. I haven't modded it in a while. I bought a MusicMaster Replacement bridge but didn't find out it's a string through until it arrived.
I’ve had record setbacks trying to get this project done.
I put a MusicMaster 4-saddle bridge on mine. Same spacing, just 4 saddles.
