Kevin had an idea, “could you put a Jazzmaster Tremolo on my Gibson SG?” Â We said “sure how about a cool bridge to add to that”.
It’s cool look is only overshadowed buy how much fun it is to play and how great to sounds.
There was a little bit of a challenge since the body on the SG is a little thinner than the Fender body it was made for.
We had the option of lifting the trem with a slight shim to give the spring more clearance but we opted to shorten the screw that holds the spring and cut down the spring for a little less tension.
In a perfect world the neck angle to the body would be a little flatter but we had no problems with the bridge that high above the body. Â If nothing else the added string pressure on the saddles gave it more clear of a sound.
The Mastery bridge is just an amazing sounding and functioning bridge. Â Not with out it’s faults is is the best bridge I have ever seen for this style guitar. Â We were sure to lube all points of friction and that made a big difference helping the guitar to stay in tune as well as it did.
