Schaller 4201 retrofit tremolo / bridge for Gibson, chrome, 2-29/32" post spacing,
the instructions are terrible - they say to remove existing studs that your bridge screws go into - that was not necessary. if you have never used this bridge it will take 2 hours to get it right and tune it. the two bolts shown in the photo are 4 four different pieces and difficult to work with, the instructions show no diagrams on assembly. YOU CAN NOT EASILY ADJUST YOUR ACTION - AFTER PUTTING THIS ON, MY ACTION WAS HIIGHER THAN THAT OF MY STRAT - TOTALLY DISSAPPOINTED - the springs in the bridge are weak and can not handle 11s, it puts the strings in totally floating mode which means tuning in between songs ( if you needed to) would throw off all the other string - dont buy dont buy dont buy!!!!!!!!!!Reviewed by: david from nj usa. on 2/16/2013
I put one on a 1966 Melodymaker with a P-90
In 1980 I finally got a used Les Paul with a Kahler. I could not tune to chords so I started looking for a second guitar. Finally I routed out my brother''s Melodymaker and put a Quadmatic BC Rich bridge and a PAF in it. I also put some freebie Ibanez tuners on it, and had one screamin demon of a guitar. I still try out old Melodymakers and if the play well put these and P-90s in them, or other combos of stuff. I put this on a 1967 red Melodymaker and am having serious fun with it. Do I regret modifying a 60s Gibson? Well...and after seeing one played in a C&W video definitely NO. Chesney''s ''Shift Work'' the video made me not regret making a mediocre guitar kicka**! Some of them played superbly yet had horrid tone, and junk tuning machines. This is but one Schaller item that makes a LP Jr, Melodymaker, SG Special, etc (wrap around bridge guitar) really nice. The roller bridge helps, and use locking tuners.Reviewed by: Seth from Arizona. on 9/3/2012 9:13:00 PM
