The Faber ABRM-59 Tune-o-matic Bridge is a 50s vintage correct 'no wire' ABR-1 style bridge with the post spacing and hole size to fit most 'import' metric style Tune-o-matic bridges and original Gibson Nashville style bridges (the ABRM will not fit the new larger 5 mm Gibson Nashville or ABR-1 TOM posts). We stock these with brass saddles (both plated and plain brass) and also nylon saddles (to match some select vintage ABR-1 bridges), the saddles have the Gibson 12" radius. The Faber ABRM is designed as an upgrade piece it comes as just the body, bridge posts are not included.
If you need to replace a Gibson ABR-1 spec Tune-o-matic we stock the Faber ABRH.

Increased tonal pallete
Initially I found difficulty in finding the correct matching replacement bridge / bridge post and bushings to suit my guitar as an upgrade.
I contacted staff at Glued to Music and found them to be most helpful and knowledgeable on the subject.
Parts I ordered with the assistance given arrived on time and first class condition.
If like me you are a bit unsure, then I advise you contact staff and they will ease the process.

I installed this bridge together with a Faber tailpiece on an Epiphone Les Paul Standard ‘59. Excellent low cost modification which improved tone, sustain and clarity instantly. Highly recommended.

Improvement to Epiphone Dot/335
Arrived in good time, easy to fit and the intonation was perfect without any adjustment, I was mighty impressed! Along with a replacement Faber tailpiece has noticeably improved the tone, brightness and sustain on the guitar.

Great improvement in sustain, well worth it
Fitted this along, with the studs, to my Les paul. Improved clarity and sustain, well worth it
