I have bought 2 of these, one for an Orville LPC & another for the Tokai LS-65.
These bridges take an already decent guitar to the next level.
They are affordable, well made and outstanding.
Proof that you don't need to spend $100+ for a decent bridge.
Will fit any Gibson style ABR-1 with M4 posts.
And each saddle has C clips instead of a wire retainer, no more rattle.

Honeslty I'd spend a little more and get a Gotoh bridge.
Also its more accessible for me.

I like that they’re made in S. Korea instead of China, wish they didn’t splash their logo on everything they make though. My old tokai is probably about due for a new abr in the next few years, might give one of these a shot and see...

I'm not putting a bridge with an aftermarket logo on it unless I get the bridge for free AND I get paid.

What a bunch of BS. With a Fender headstock on it yet.

The things I really like about Gotoh bridges are the rather “knife edge” saddle tops and the very secure and tight saddle attachments to the bridge body. Differences I can actually hear.
