I just wore out my bridge on my second hand les paul (I wish I had the real thing. ) and need a new one. Whats a good bridge that will last for a long time and isn't to expensive? I play alot of Metallica if that helps.
What kind of bridge is it?
http://www.stewmac.com Almost anything from there will do the business, have a browse.
Wow. I feel stupid. I can't believe I forgot to put that in there. lol. It's a tune-o-matic bridge.What kind of bridge is it?
It depends on how much money you want to spend. You can get a tonepros bridge for a crazy amount of money or get a functional one for 5 bucks.
The max I would want to spend is $35.00
Another thing to bear in mind is the stud spacing and the diameter of the holes for the studs.
Yeah. I measured it a little bit ago and it was about 73mm. I'll get a more accurate measurement tomorrow.
How is it "worn out"? What is different about it now?
It's hard to explain. One of the dimples for the bolt that adjusts the saddle (I think that was it's called) is worn out and the saddle drops down when ever I mute.
sounds like just need to replace the worn part, not the whole bridge. you can probably get what you want from:-
In the USA www.Guitarfetish.com has good cheap parts.
Do you mean the threads on the post? Or the thumb screw that holds it up?
The reces that the front of the screw rests in. It's the body of the bridge. Not the bolt or the saddles.
OK... you need a new bridge. See the other posts.The reces that the front of the screw rests in. It's the body of the bridge. Not the bolt or the saddles.
That one should fit it is import specs.
I measured it and it was 74mm. I'll prob be getting that one in a few days. How are the saddles supposed to be adjusted? I know how to adjust them but I don't know how they should be staggered. Sorry for all the noob terms. lol.
Has anyone ever heard of "Mighty Mite" bridges? Are they any good?
