Kluson Replacement Nashville Tune-O-Matic Bridge For Samick Guitars
Kluson USA® Replacement Nashville Tune-O-Matic Bridge For Samick® Guitars
Kluson USA® has developed a Nashville style tune-o-matic bridge designed to exactly retrofit the Epiphone® Sheraton II guitars and similar models built by Samick® during the 90's. You are no longer stuck modifying your instrument or suffering with the original, inferior piece with its non-standard post spacing. This modern bridge is custom made for your guitar and is a drop in replacement with no mods required. Comes complete with studs and inserts.
- 72mm post to post center to center spacing
- E to E spacing= 52mm
- Bridge material= Zinc alloy
- Stud top diameter= 6mm
- Stud thread type= Metric M8 - 1.25
- Bushing O.D.= 12mm
- Bushing Depth= 25/32 in. (19.8mm)
- Saddles= Zinc alloy
- Bridge radius = 14 in.
The spacing of the screws were just a fraction off. I managed to screw them in at an angle but the force required bent up the screw heads, leaving sharp edges. Not happy.
Fast delivery and great product
Delivery from USA to Australia was faster compared to local orders. Very impressed. Thank you! The bridge is great quality and fits my non standard guitar perfectly.
Odd size just the thing
I purchased a 2021 Gretsch G5622 and wanted to convert it to gold hardware. The guitar is made in China and has a bunch of odd threads, measurements, and specifications. After a thorough search for a 72mm gold Nashville bridge (a rare post spacing), I found this. I installed the bridge using the old posts and it fits perfectly. I was a bit worried about wide string notches, but there is no buzz and I was able to intonate it without problem. Perfect!
Get this for your Samick Epi Sheraton II
I want to back up what JB says in his/her review. My experience was the same. I have a 2004 Samick-built Sheraton II, natural color. The new Kluson bridge makes the guitar's sound open up and come alive! If you have a Samick Sheraton II, get this bridge first! Then you can think about upgrading pickups, pots, caps, and wiring. But do this first.
I want to upgrade the pickups but the poles would not align with the strings due to the Samick bridge. The Samick bridge seemed to absorb and deaden the tone. The string spacing was too close, and the height of the saddles seemed pretty casually done.
The Kluson bridge is lighter than the Samick bridge, and the tone is vastly better.
Hope this helps you get the tone you want.
(Sorry if duplicate, first submit didn't seem to work.)
For whatever reason epiphone uses a tune O-Matic bridge on the Sheraton with different post spacing than on other Gibson style guitars. This bridge fit my 2019 Sheraton perfectly. The difference is night and day. Feels and sounds like a new guitar. Much better than the stock bridge.
