    Thinking of changing the bridge and stoptail of my ObG. Would the new Gibson wireless ABR-1 fit? Also, do you guys recommend any other bridges from different brands?

    Gotoh makes a wireless ABR-1 that should fit. I put one on my Burny SG when it's original collapsed.

    Oh yea! Totally forgot about gotoh. Thing is, I've recently just acquired a 93 59R, sounds pretty dead in comparison to my Epi Japanese LP. My Epi just has a let more presence when plugged in. Acoustically, you can hear the Epi just has a lot more compared to the ObG. I think its probably gotta do with the set up and the bridge, the ObG one is pretty rusty. Definitely gonna change the caps and pots to my ObG as well. I heard it opens up the guitar a bit.

    Gotoh makes the stock bridge for the Japanese Epi LP right? If so, I think i'll just get the entire Gotoh set for my ObG

    I'm not sure if your original is also Gotoh, but their hardware does seem to be OEM on many Japanese guitars and is high quality.

    ^ That is exactly the one I bought, and from that seller as he had the best price. A shiny new bridge on my kind of crusty aged guitar wasn't going to do :)

    Probably no reason you couldn't just transfer the brass plate to another Terada ObG CSB LPC without the neck break , no one would be any the wiser :)

    MIJ and G are about 0.5mm different. Should fit. I just put one on an Edwards.
