I'm looking to upgrade the bridge and tailpiece on my 2017 Custom (gold hardware). Creamtone or Faber (or something else) and why? Thanks for your help
I appreciate the honestyI installed a Faber bridge and tailpiece on my LPs for aesthetic reasons. I wouldn't call it an "upgrade" really. You're going to get people here telling you two very different things about these expensive "upgrades":
- This expensive new bridge and tailpiece really brightened up my dull LP sound!
- This expensive new bridge and tailpiece really mellowed out my bright LP sound!
The truth is that unless you have a functional defect in your current setup, what you have
stock is just as good as Creamtone or Faber. I have no issues telling you that even though I've spent $400 on Faber parts for my current two LPs.
Check out the link for more info....Guitar fetish you say? Love their pickups, have not tried their hardware.. hmm
Wow! It looks fantastic!I changed out ALL the hardware on my 06 Studio. It came with gold hardware and I’m not a big fan of gold hardware. When I bought the guitar, it just played so great, I was willing to overlook the gold.
After a few years I finally made the change to nickel.
Gotoh nashville bridge, and Gotoh
aluminum tailpiece. I’m very happy with these, the bridge is well built, solid and intonates perfectly!
