High quality machined and plated wired ABR-1 bridge for Gibson USA guitars. Made in the USA! Historically correct original 50's Gibson tune-o-matic with the wire retainer. *American made thumb wheels and posts are sold separately (SKU # R1PTW509).
The ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge was the brainchild of legendary Gibson president Ted McCarty in 1954, setting a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. The ABR-1 is slotted directly into the body of the guitar using a separate stud and thumbwheel, providing a firm seating for the strings and allowing players the ability to adjust and fine tune intonation and string height in a matter of minutes. It also yields a great union between the strings and body, which results in excellent vintage tone and sustain. Historical Gibson USA replacement ABR-1 tune-o-matic Bridge with a wire retainer. Rattle free and extremely accurate vintage reproduction. Solid brass saddles and standard 6-32 screws.
