Hahaha well i see i have a lot to learn. I go by what you say Roxy, you know much more than i do that is for shure. I can learn a lot from you here:thumbs:

I actually should look at a direct replacement that will fit the posts and 12" radius.

I actually just ordered some "Gibson" bridges that say they have a 4mm hole, but since they are in the US I didn't show you those. There is no brand name listed so I didn't see any way we could see if anyone in Europe carried them as well. The owner of the site insists the holes are 4mm so I'm going to see if it fits the Japanese guitars as it would be another option for them. If he's wrong and only the 6-32 post fits I'll just save them for new builds.

But, yeah Gibson did use a 4mm post on the Nashvilles unitl a few years ago when they changed it to 5mm.

However that Schaller is good to know about for the newer guitars as so many places haven't gotten any newer bridges in stock for recent Gibsons.

That's really cheap. For the price, I guess one could live with the wire on that ABR-1 :)
There are non wire ones too, plus Nashvilles and even different models with nylon saddles. But, I ordered the cheapest ones with the wire first just to check them out :) They are cheaper than the Hosco wired bridges.

Nashville bridges don’t usually collapse like that. What happened? Decking the tailpiece can collapse an ABR-1. The Nashville design was supposed to correct that problem.

Tailpiece is not decked. Strings are a .11 set. So explain...
