"Stud Finder" Wraparound Bridge for 1953 - 1960 Gibsons by Music City Bridge

Music City Bridge's "Stud Finder" is the best replacement compensated wraparound bridge for 1950s and 1960s original Gibsons with offset bridge studs. It corrects all of the original stop bar problems. Adjustment wrench included.

The Stud Finder features:

  • Extended treble-side collar and compensated top for accurate intonation.
  • Offset string holes that allow strings to line up over pickup poles and fretboard correctly.
  • Extended treble-side collar gives metal-on-metal contact. This means better tone, sustain and NO MORE TIPPING!
  • Low profile so you can set your action as low as you want to.
  • No sitar buzz!

Important Note:

  • This bridge only addresses the problems on original Gibsons, not on reissue LPs.
  • Because Gibson used studs with a variety of diameters, installation might require replacement studs.

Artist feedback:

"In tune, great sustain, sounds amazing, It's everything you could want. " - Vince Gill

"The improvement in intonation and playability is such a joy to discover that I can't recommend it more highly." - Robben Ford

"The Stud Finder finally gets it right! The intonation is finally right now, the strings fall on the fingerboard where they should, the tone is awesome AND it looks right to the guitar. Well done!" - Jerry McPherson

Music City Bridge Three String Tree

The Three String Tree by Music City Bridge offers an elegant solution to the age-old problem of the buzzy G string on guitars with 6-in-line headstocks.

If you've ever wished that your Fender-style guitar had a better break angle for the G string but didn't want to drill an additional hole in your headstock to add a second string tree, the Music City Bridge Three String Tree is for you. The Three String Tree uses the existing screw hole from your original string tree so there is no need to modify your headstock. It functions like a normal string tree but has an extra wing that reaches over to grab the G string, giving it just the right amount of downward pull. The Three String Tree comes with three heights of Fender-style nylon risers to allow you to fine tune it to any break angle you desire.

Mexican II Enhanced Tremolo Block, Right Hand New!

This trem block replaces the stock zinc block in the 2019 and later Fender Player MIM Strat and Fender Vintera Modified Strat.

These guitars were shipped with one of two different bridges, so before purchasing this block you must examine the bottom of your existing tremolo block to determine which bridge you have.

If your block has three distinct ejector circles on the bottom and is stamped in one of the circles with a number 1 or 2 (see below), you have a made in Mexico 2 pivot bridge, and this Mexican II block is the correct replacement block.

Tremolo block with 3 ejector circles and stamped with a number 2


If your block is stamped on the bottom with PW29 (see below), you have a made in China Ping bridge and this block will not fit your guitar. You should instead buy the Mexican Standard Enhanced Block.

Tremolo block stamped with PW29


Any 3/16" diameter 10-32 English thread tremolo arm will work, but we recommend the Callaham virtual pop-in arm for Callaham blocks.
