EPI SHERATON II BRIDGE REPLACEMENT HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

A little under a year ago I bought a new Epiphone Sheraton II Ebony guitar and have been recently looking into upgrades.

 

I am about to purchase a Gibson 57 Classic Plus Pickup to replace my bridge pickup and I'm excited to see how it turns out. Since that decision, I've been constantly looking for different upgrades I can do to get the most out of my guitar with the budget that I have (which isn't much).

 

After properly learning how to intonate my guitar, I noticed that I'm having issues intonating the G string (I use 11 guage d'Addario strings). The saddle for the G string on my stock LockTone Tune-O-Matic Bridge is pushed all the way to the back and wont go any further...yet the fretted note at the 12th fret is still a bit sharp compared to the perfect pitch harmonic. It's really frustrating when playing high up on the neck because the intonation problem really comes out. So I started looking into replacing the bridge and it seems the most common are the ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic Bridge and the Nashville Tune-O-Matic Bridge. My question is, which would be better for a new Sheraton II. I'd like to avoid drilling if possible. I'd also like to avoid buying something that doesn't fit. Haha. Any Help would be appreciated!

 

Thanks,

 

Nathan
