Guitar Bridge Help

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by bassestkkm, Apr 19, 2014.


  1. I'm in the middle of a build and need to find a suitable bridge for a 2 humbucker guitar but I think will be a flat top. That may change but because the scale is 25.5 like on Strats and Teles I wanted sonething with longer intonation saddles that doesn't take away from the guitar. Schaller makes one but its really awefull looking haha

    Any other suggestions?

    Babicz FCH bass bridge, Gotoh 201 high mass bridge are what i used, there are other popular bridge like Bassass II (but i have not used them)

  3. Sorry psp742! I'm looking for a guitar bridge not a bass bridge! Basses are much easier to shop for haha

    well well, sorry i misread your post... I need to have my eyes checked.. If basic upgrade is what you need.. a Fender bridge with bend saddle and full steel tremolo block is good start.

    'Fender' stamped bent steel Fender tremolo with full steel block ($30-$50 depending where you buy it)

    Super-vee Bladerunner bridge with propeitary block.. ($149-$160 depending where you buy it... it is pricey but well worth it) i changed the original saddles to Graphtech string savers
