Since these have a press in bushing, I'm wondering if these will fit on a Nashville post ? Are they even selling these yet ?
Good question...... if they fit the 2012 and newer Nashville posts they won’t fit the older than 2012 Nashville posts without a lot of slop.Since these have a press in bushing, I'm wondering if these will fit on a Nashville post ? Are they even selling these yet ?
I never managed to confirm this thing about pre and post 2012.Good question...... if they fit the 2012 and newer Nashville posts they won’t fit the older than 2012 Nashville posts without a lot of slop.
2012 and newer are bigger posts than older models.
Or they may have their own sized posts.
Or they may fit the smaller older Nashville posts.
I don’t know .... but I’m sure someone here does.
Here you go Pier..... the Nashville on the 2012 SG has a larger hole than the 2004 bridge next to it..... I don’t have a USA Gibson newer than 2013 so I could be wrong and they went back to the smaller hole Nashville..... shit happensI never managed to confirm this thing about pre and post 2012.
I have nashville bridges from 86, 87, 89, 90, 97, 2003, 2009, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. They all fit the same (nashville) posts. Probably another mistery from Gibson randomness along years.
As for the ABR1 they are using these days on USA models, they are standard ABR1 with conversion posts. You can buy those on PLT for few bucks.
Very well could be only 2012.... like I said I only have 7 USA models.... 2 late 70s Norlins and a 2004 Flying V, 2011 Traditional, 2011 Trad Pro P90, 2012 SG, and a 2013 Standard.Yeah... but all those I have in my guitars are all the same. Go figure... (could be only on 2012?)
For example, 1990 and 2017
No idea at this point. I've CS Nashville and they still are the same as those I've on my USA models, and that's pre or post 2012. (the measure above it's a USA from 1990 VS a Custom Shop from 2017).I was told by a friend that all Custom Shop Nashville bridges use the smaller 4mm post and it was only the USA models that got the bigger 5mm post.
Faber is what i use,... they are pricey but very well made.Have been researching the Calaham version. Cold rolled steel. Heavy: Installed on a Strat absolutely gave it more sustain
Brightened the tone a bit. Never seen the Faber till last night. Interesting Have to think on it some more. I like the screw in post with the locking nuts. Looks like a better system than Tonepros.
