H550 Upgrade Recos - Schaller

Recommended Posts

Ok wow, my Luthier just installed the tonepros ABR with the Nylon G Saddles and it totally balanced out the 550! It tamed the pingy highs and it's way warmer overall. It def brought it a bit closer into the carved top realm. It did seem to reduce the overall sustain a bit, but the change did exactly what I wanted it to do :) It was a direct drop in:

My takeaway for Heritage H550 bridge mods is go with the TonePros ABR with Nylon G Saddles, if your'e looking for more of a Wes type of sound and play with the tone & vol rolled back a bit on the neck PuP. If you want a brighter, ringy acoustic sound I'd go with a regular ABR with metal saddles, or just keep the Schaller.   >>Thanks again guys, appreciate the guidance - Shes Rockin now!!!

Excellent!  550's are wonderful instruments.  Glad you found how to maximize her for your playing needs.
