Replacement for 2016 LP Tribute HP API bridge


Recommended Posts

Hi all, i'm trying to customize my 2016 LP Tribute HP and make my own unique Guitar.


I removed the G-Force, installed vintage Gibson tuners. I removed the PCB circuit and replaced It with handmade circuit with CTS pots + Bumblebee.

I've also installed bone nut and Di Marzio double cream PAF pickups.

I'm looking for a replacement for the API bridge and i'd like to put an ABR1 like bridge up.

Any suggestion ?


Many thanks

Do you have any specific model to suggest? I'd like to avoid any drilling adjustment...

Honestly im not 100% sure but I think one like this

12" saddle radius
Bridge post hole diameter - 6.5mm
Centre to centre spacing between the two mounting post holes - 74mm
Centre to centre of the two outer saddles (low E to high E) - 52mm

There is also TonePros that I think is what Gibson use sometimes
