Guitar Bridge

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I just ordered a TonePros bridge and tailpiece set to replace the current setup on my Les Paul. Because this is my first time, I'm a little nervous with notching the saddles on the bridge. What's the best way to determine where the notch should be and how to do it?

I'd say that you should look at the way the string lies over the poles of the pickups. Move each string side to side on the saddle until you see that it lines up with the centre of the appropriate pole of the pickup, and that's the place to notch.

Not sure how you notch it. Maybe with nut files (which come in sizes according to the string size) that way you get the correct diameter notch for each string....like on a nut.

Hope this helps, and that those who know better will correct me if there's a better way. :D
