Mickguard Posted September 16, 2005 Report Share Posted September 16, 2005 I bought a black Wilkinson wraparound bridge (LP Jr style). Problem is the studs are really loose in the ferrules --even with the studs screwed down fairly low, I can rock them back and forth. That CAN'T be right, can it? Worse, for the project I want to use the bridge for, I need to set the bridge really high--but of course the looseness becomes a real problem up there. There doesn't seem to be any way to contact Wilkinson either...I bought the bridge from guitarfetish, I've contacted him to see if he can help (I'm kind of betting he will if he can). But otherwise, what can I do about this one? Edit: I've been looking at the bridge a little more...not only are the studs loose in the ferrules, but the bridge itself is loose in the studs...I mean, there's a LOT of play there, not just a little bit. Okay, so the string tension is going to eliminate much of the looseness--and I can probably tighten those down with retainer clips...but still, it can't be good that all of these parts are loose, can it?
