Our vintage-style bridges are virtually exact duplicates for the bridges found on vintage Rickenbackers. From the saddle adjustment screws to the locknuts to the size, profile, and material of the saddles, these bridges are almost indistinguishable from the ones that were fit on the classic guitars of the late 50s and 60s.
There is one important difference, though: our bridges are precision engineered to higher standards. No warped frames, no rattles, no buzzes, no wobbles. Everything you want from a vintage bridge and nothing that you don't. With the best of both classic design and precision manufacturing, it's the perfect drop-in replacement for your missing, rattling, or buzzing vintage bridge.
NB: This bridge is a drop-in replacement for the vintage part. As such, it is sized perfectly to fit a vintage baseplate. However, it does not fit a newer baseplate or those used on the C58, C64, etc. If you're going to retrofit this bridge on a newer (post-1985) guitar, you'll need a vintage-spec baseplate as well. Please look in the options to include one. The default saddle radius is 7¼". Please let us know if you need something else.
