The Faber TBWC-59 Compensated Wraparound is a 50s vintage style bridge with special compensated string guides made from brass. The compensation staggers the point where the strings leave the bridge to improve the intonation of Gibson Melody Maker and LP Junior style guitars that often come with a plain, non-compensated tailpiece. The bridge is made from lightweight aluminium and designed as an upgrade piece (or to replace an original vintage piece for preservation) it comes as just the body, bridge posts/studs and body bushings/anchors are not included. In addition to the compensated string guides there are allen/hex screws behind the bridge posts that can be adjusted to move the whole bridge backwards and forwards and also slant it to add more intonation room to heavy bass strings.

Very affordable way to transform a cheap guitar. Definitely also install the steel inserts and locking studs. The difference is night and day.

Just what I needed!
Ordered this to replace the lightning standard Epiphone wrap-around bridge on my Coronet. Intonates better now. Aesthetically looks miles better than the original and seems to be a little more resonant as well. Faber are just one of the go to bridges for a reason. Just what I needed!

A simple improvement to your Junior.
The second time I've bought this bridge for a Les Paul Junior. The first time was an Epiphone. The second time for a Gibson. Simply they make the Guitar ring. Great Product.
