How do ABM bridges work?

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by um... yeah, Jun 14, 2004.


  1. Just back from the gig and boy are my fingers tired!.. :p

    ....anyway....I was just surfing around for a new bridge and am leaning towards a Hipshot or ABM....the Hipshot looks straight forward enough, but in looking at the pics of ABM bridges I can't see any intonation screws (the longish ones for back and forth saddle adjustment) for the saddles...anyone know how they work?

    Curiously submitted,
    um... yeah
     
  2. Pretty neat huh? :cool:

    The saddles are precision machined to slide in the slotted base. They are kept in place with a set screw on the top of the saddle. Once tightened the saddle locks in position. They really aren't too hard to set once you get the hang of it. After that, they are rock solid. I've got one on my fretted Jazz and it's hard to beat.
