535 Gotoh Bridge/Tailpiece replacement

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm looking to replace at least the bridge on my 535 and also perhaps the tailpiece.

They are both 'heavy' Gotoh nickel plated pieces.

I wanted a narrower bridge so I can get the tailpiece closer to the body without strings on bridge body.

Would also consider an aluminium tailpiece to save on weight.

I'm confused as to exactly what sort of model bridges and tailpieces I need to look for as there are nashville models, abr1 etc.

Thanks

there is a thread on here somewhere, discussing compatible ABR-1 bridges ( which are narrower than nashville ) & hardware that will fit the modern posts

I think kidsmoke put it together? lots of discussion & info

can't seem to find it with search function

Thanks @bolero. I saw a couple of those with the schaller bridge replacement but my guitar has the more traditional looking Gotoh hardware.
