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.

Instant improvement

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
