Description

The TonePros AVR2G Tune-o-matic Bridge with Nylon Saddles gives you the appearance of a vintage ABR-1 but includes their trademark locking posts. The bridge is loaded with specially formulated saddles based on the original Nylon 66 material used by Gibson in the '60s. TonePros' new material retains the tone of the original Nylon 66 saddles but adds other high tech ingredients that provide a slippery surface, this improves tuning stability, prevents string breakage and provides superior durability against saddle wear. Set screws in the bridge body lock it to the height adjustment bridge posts which improves vibration transfer to the guitar body, eliminates rattles, removes any chance of the bridge falling off during string changes and stops the height adjustment accidentally being changed. The AVR2G is a direct replacement for Gibson ABR-1 bridges and is supplied with imperial 6-32 thread posts and thumbwheels.

It's a well made bridge, but...

I replaced the standard Tonepros with brass saddles for this bridge on my overly bright CS Les Paul to see what effect it would have on the tone. Some players prefer nylon saddles and some Gibson guitars have nylon saddle bridges as standard. I noted from several reviews that the tonal change is supposed to be subtle but this was not the case for me - otherwise I would have given the product 5 stars. So I will re-install the original bridge
