Hi roman what do you have in LP bridges available at this time, thanks.

Will ABR-1's fit straight into LP Standards? Oh and whats so good about them compared to stock ones.

What's the advantage of the spring loaded thumbwheels?
It is that little bit of extra, overkill, if you will. it just keeps everything nice and tight.
Oh man, those look awesome.
Thanks for the kind words and the youtube video also. WOW, My stuff is on Youtube now.
I cant wait to see the guitar it is going on.
As to my bridge design, it is a simple, built like a tank, bridge that is indestructible.
I came up with the design after years of replacing Nashville TOMs that had rotted or collapsed in the center. It always bugged me to replace it with another bridge that over time would do the same thing.
With the way some folks baby their guitars, the nashville will last for quite some time, but in the real world of gigging I have seen them deteriorate fast.
So, I came up with one that would be able to take any abuse given to it and still come out rocking.
You'll see it, my friend. Now I'm waiting for Will's pickups to arrive to send the parts and get the guitar project going!
Roman, do you have a recommended tailpiece to go with your beautiful bridge?
Yes, it's a really good thing to think this way. That's what I'm fighting for, guitars have to be played, they are not made to stay in a fly case.
I have 8 guitars, I can't always use all of them, but my friends often borrow me 1 or 2 guitar when they want to record in studio or when they want to try another sound.
The guitar I'm using the more is a 1965 gibson melody maker, and you can really see on it that I play it a lot.
I'm building a Les Paul and I really think I will be using it A LOT that's why I want strong parts that never break "in the real world of gigging".
I have a question about this bridge, What about the dynamic ???
On my melody maker I changed the bridge for a no name adjustable bridge, and it really killed the sound, the dynamic, the sustain, and the strings were harder to bend.
I switched back to a one piece bridge and it gave me back my sound.
Roman, does your bridge give a good dynamic to the guitar ?
I think it does.
Hi Roman, I'm looking to upgrade the bridge on my 83 Les Paul Custom, been reading about titanium, then I saw your post re the stainless steel bridge you make, I'm looking for sustain and brightness, but also reducing string breakage, also was hoping for gold hardware but thats second to tone, can you shed some light on this for me?
Thanks, Dave Diamond
For 75 this is something i need! I think callaham is making something like this..but id rather support rist. Did the abr-1 ever come out...i like modding my sg..and someone in the factory put an abr on it.
These do look really nice. I alway have trouble bumping the thumbwheels when changing strings. It pisses me off to no end.
do have htem in Metric theeaqd for us epiphone guys?
