Callaham CNC Machined Steel Billet ABR-1 tun-o-matic bridge

This bridge is a direct replacement on Gibson guitars with an ABR-1 bridge or with our special conversion post on guitars equipped with the Nashville bridge. The body of this bridge is CNC machined from a billet of Cold Rolled alloy steel under rigid quality control standards at every level of production. This is the only alloy Steel bridge available. Gibson and the other aftermarket bridges are cast from a zinc alloy, brass or aluminum which causes heavy dampening to the critical overtones that support the fundamental.

See our Gibson Parts Details page for a detailed explanation of the process behind the creation of our ABR-1 Bridge and Stopbar Tailpiece, as well as the benefits.

Options:

With Vintage Studs and Thumbwheels:

This assembly uses #6-32 stainless studs that screw directly into the wood top. Covers vintage Gibson's, Historic's models and others. Look at your studs.

With Nashville Conversion Studs and Thumbwheels:

This assembly is for Gibson's that use the 2 piece insert / thumbwheel combination for mounting. Late 70's Gibson's and early 80's Gibsons had ABR's with Nashville stud mounting. All "Nashville" bridges use this mounting. Our 1 piece studs replaces the factory 2 piece stud assembly.

With Metric Studs and Thumbwheels:

These studs are for mounting Asian copies of vintage Gibson's that use a 4 mm stud screwed directly into the wood top. Stud spacing must be 2.915 in. (74.0 mm) to work with our bridge. Studs and thumbwheels are M4 x .7.

Note: Callaham Guitars can produce custom conversion studs. Please email for a quote.
