Which Way Round Does The Bridge Go On A Guitar

For example to raise your 12th fret action by 132 you must make the new saddle 116 taller. That could then get in the way of adjusting the saddles.


The strip is held in place with recessed screws.

Which way round does the bridge go on a guitar. Some people experienced repairmen included would tell you to align the intonation adjustment screws of the tune-o-matic bridge facing the nut as per above pic which they claim is the correct way. A lot depends on how much initial compensation was put into the slot and what strings are being used. Simply scribe a line across the bottom of the old saddle and sand the new saddle down to that line.

Round is a good shape and it should be smooth and tapered on both sides where the string enters and leaves the bridge. The saddle-intonation adjustment screw is located at the rear of the bridge and the idea is to move each saddle forward by turning the screw counterclockwise or backward clockwise. Ina post up above someone discussed how one side of the bridge slopes down a bit for the higher strings at the.

This type of bridge is not hard bolted to the guitar but rather pivots around a mechanism that is hard fixed to the body of the guitar. Friday December 26 2008 Tune-o-matic bridge. Logo faces the neck.

Its similar to Takamines Palathetic pickup which includes a relatively bulky metal carrier inside the guitar six ceramic cylinders that protrude into the bridge and make contact with a metal strip. If ya got time to breathe ya got time for music Briscoe Darling - Apr291963. The ABR-1 bridge on the other hand poses an issue because the saddle adjustment screw heads extend beyond the bridge edge.

Phil its pretty common for the low E string to have quite a bit of compensation - I frequently find that the B is all the way back like this saddle the G is all the way forward and the 4th 5th and 6th form a smooth line from front to back. Some high end cables for both speakers and instruments are directional but most are not. Depending on the guitar you might need the extra intonation range or screwdriver access but theres no universal correct orientation for a TOM.

It doesnt matter which direction the screws are facing. The bridge works either way around. The choice of these numbers has to be based on the playability of the guitar for the future owner.

Inside the violin it says 44 and the bridge the wooden piece that holds up the strings says 44. Regular guitar cords are not directional - both ways work the same. On a typical two-piece Tune-o-matic bridge like you see on most Gibson-style guitars the strings are supposed to go through the back of the tailpiece and then come up over the bridge.

So I assume that means it is the right size. If the bridge has a retaining wire small threaded posts that go directly into the wood of the guitar top without any inserts and thumbwheels that are separate and thread onto the studs and saddles that will flop out if you remove the wire then you have an older style ABR-1 bridge. When you top wrap it instead of going to the back of the tailpiece you actually put the strings in through the front of the tailpiece and then wrap the strings.

For the EB-guitars these numbers are 44 and 56 mm. In almost all cases the exception being the Peter Green mod you want the screws the hot side of the pickups closest to the bridge on the bridge pickup and closest to the neck on the neck pickup.

Gibson ones usually come with just the low E and A saddles that way round. Proud Member of the Banjo Mafia. That one would have had the saddle screws facing the neck.

For a classical guitar that distance varies between 40 to 45 mm at the 0-fret position and increases to about 57 mm above the bridge. It makes zero difference provided the strings fit in the slots and the bridge is intonated correctly. If you want to change your action at the 12th fret you must double the difference at the saddle.

This strip in turn contacts the bottom of the saddle. Sharp edges and narrow slots can snag or choke the string and damage it as well as grab the bridge and move it as you tune. There are two popular types of tremolo bridges the Fenders synchronized tremolo and the Floyd Rose.

Youll have to spend at least 80 to get a guitar cord thats directional. If the screws face the tailpiece and if the tailpiece is screwed down all the way you run the risk that that strings will touch the screw heads. Bridge probably tilts backward just a tad.

The typical far-east ones - which all come with three saddles facing one way and three the other - can be poorly finished and sharp enough to cut the wound strings if the vertical face is at the back so you want to fix one or both of those things. Theres no one right way to do it but bridge pu screws close to the bridge and neck pu screws close to the neck is the normal orientation. The final step is to intonate the guitar by moving the new saddles forward or backward in the bridge to shorten or lengthen the vibrating portion of the string.
