Tone Pros System II TP6-N Locking US Tune-o-matic Bridge 4mm Small Posts Nickel
Time to get some real tone and precise intonation out of your US tune-o-matic setup.
This is a Tone Pros TP6-N locking tune-o-matic bridge in nickel. The items are new as pictured , include bridge, bridge posts with spare bushings for builders - no need to replace your existing bushings. This bridge is for US Gibsons or other US guitars with small (4mm) bridge posts - the Nashville tune-o-matic. The saddles are unnotched.

This bridge ups the ante on the Gibson's Nashville Bridge concept and is head-and-shoulders above the stock in quality. It is a direct replacement, requiring no modifications to install. The body of the bridge locks to the posts via two small set screws on the sides of the bridge.
The results are pretty dramatic. No buzzing, no rattling. The bridge is coupled perfectly to the posts, it won't move even with the strings off. This results in increased sustain and harmonics, better intonation, better tone.
Once you try Tone Pros hardware, you're hooked - I've got them on all my guitars - solidbodies, hollowbodies, bridge/tailpiece combos, wrap arounds, whatever. Never disappointed. People spend all kinds of money on pickups and electronics, try a couple of bucks on the string path and listen to the difference.
