Installing Tunamatic Posts


Recommended Posts

are you screwing them directly into the wood without studs?

Thanks - you may have uncovered my problem. The tailpiece I bought came with studs which I assume I hammer in to the wood and then screw the tailpiece posts in to the studs. My bridge did not come with any studs so I assumed I had to screw it directly in to the wood.

Do most tunamatic bridge posts come with studs? Any ideas where I could buy just the studs?

"ABR" style TOM bridges have their posts screw directly into the wood. I prefer these, but it's a matter of taste.

I simply put the stud in my drill chuck and screw it in slowly with a hand drill. A bit of heavy tape or a piece of leather wrapped around the post prevents the plating from being marred in the process.
