LOVE my Epi '61 RI SG, but want to replace bridge

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have one of the Epi 1961 SG reissues in Alpine white, and I absolutely love it. Flat out killer guitar, and the P90's in it can go from beautiful melodic tones to paint peeling roars. However, I think the wrap around tailpiece is a very weak link in the chain. I want to replace it but not sure what will fit it. Any suggestions would be very appreciated.

 

The bridge in question:

And some pr0n (who doesn't like pics of guitars, anyway [thumbup])

Thanks in advance!

 

 

Oh, I was looking at either this one:

or this one:

Zonkers,

 

Stewmac includes a spec tab that has a drawing with all specifications.

Measure and compare carefully so you do not have to go through this:

I'm not positive, as I haven't measured your guitar personally...but...

I'm pretty sure you would be alright with this one:

Keep in mind that Stewmac only carries it in nickel. (which I prefer anyway)

If you want chrome, you will need to look elsewhere or look at a different bridge.
