Hi,
I wonder what is your experience with wraparound bridges as mojotone, tone pros.....
I have a BJA LP Jr and I want to change its bridge. And yes I want it to be intonated but I don't use capo.
Are the studs important? I see that some companies sell the wraparound WITH studs (Tone Pros) and some don't.

Thanks

Uri

My experience with replacing the stock 50’s style wraparound bridge on an LP Special or Junior with a MojoAxe CWT has been that two problems are solved.

1. Intonation
2. Sitar effect

The MojoAxe CWT has an offset ridge that makes for a crisper string break angle at the apex of the bridge where the stock 50’s style bridge is too rounded.

Are the bridges on those slanted or straight across? It makes a big difference and one won’t work for the other.

That said I’ve gone through a few of each and the mojoaxe offerings are hands down the best I’ve had IF you have a slanted bridge.

I'd just chuck a standard Gibson Lightning on it and be done. Aftermarket is a slippery slope!

The Epi has a lightning bar bridge. Posts are in a straight line.

I guess it does maintain the original appearance better. Would be interested to hear the two compared tonally given the gentler break of a rounded bridge

I've used the mojoaxe on two of my LP's and am very happy. They are a little pricey though.

They are a bit. Honestly I’ve considered trying to cast my own using one of mine to make the mold… but that’s a lot of superfluous work and I like being able to support a truly top shelf business like mojoaxe. Plus Dan (owner) is a forum bro to boot.

TBH, I am surprised no one else has done this already. I don't agree with those bridges being that expensive. It is the principle of it. It's similar with some of the crazy priced Fuzz pedals. Sure I can afford a $300 fuzz, but it has like 6 or 7 electrical components and a circuit that has been around for eons. So I got into DIY pedal building.
