I have a Schecter C-1 Artist II, when I bought it, it was described as having a "Tonepros Tune-O-Matic style bridge." I never gave it much thought; it was a simple bridge that got the job done. I recently started messing around with different string gauges and had to adjust the truss and the action to get it set to where I want it. Well turns out, the metal in my bridge is weak as hell, and after a while of tweaking, I can't even turn the damn knobs with a screwdriver anymore because the metal pretty much filed off. So I started looking around for a replacement. Turns out, there's a lot of Tune-O-Matic bridges. I honestly have no idea which to get. What's the difference? Are they all pretty much the same size?
I know absolutely nothing about it, but mine works perfectly.
TonePro bridges are supposed to be very good. But you could always try the Schaller. It is first-rate, and it has thumbwheel adjusters so you won't need a screwdriver to adjust the height.
Well in addition to the screws, mine has the wheels as well. Do you think if I get the specialized wrench, I could just turn them without messing with the screws?
you need a bridge that is metric spaced for a direct replacement
get one of the models from Graphtech
My Jetpro has a Schaller on it, really great in my opinion. easy to use and perfect for micro-tuning setup.
