i dont even know if this is a stupid question or not............
Why on LP bridges sometimes the intonation adjustment screws face the headstock and others more commonly (i think) do the face the tail piece?
and does it really matter?
There are two main bridges Gibson uses, the ABR-1 and the Nashville.
On the ABR-1 the screws face the headstock, and on the Nashville the screws
face the tail piece. The difference in the two bridges is that the ABR-1 has the studs go right into the wood of the guitar and the thumb screws then on those. The Nashville has threaded inserts that are pushed into the wood of the guitar and then the studs screw into those and then thumb wheels on those.
But there are many guitars that people will flip either bridge to get a finer intonation adjustment.....or the bridge fell off when they were changing strings and they put it back on wrong
My last 2c on this. We all, including myself, need to realize there are no dumb questions just dumb answers. Even if the questions been asked before we just answer it and move on. Not that hard I think.
I posted a question about an Epiphone today and I did get very good answers but one member gave the thread one star. ??? It's just a question and it's not worthy?
When I was on an old programming/hacking forum we would get the same questions all the time but they were answered with no issues. I was part of the PHP section and if anyone would ask a question I would do my best to help out.
With more guitar experience I hope to do the same here.
Jeff, there is one, or are a few members who seek to degrade other members by exploiting any means they can to be annoying as hell to anyone they dislike. People are fairly quick to jump on any thread by a certain member, regardless of content. It's disappointing to say the least.
Mob, where to net-jerks come from?
