Gotoh 510 Stud Mount Bridge, Chrome

The ViK Guitars thread (and some time on the PRS last night) reminded me that I still want to swap out the stock bridge on my Singlecut SE for something individually intonatable. Does anyone happen to know if this is a drop-in replacement? Also, anyone know where I can find one in nickel, rather than chrome?

The alternative would be the Tone-Pros bridge:


TonePros Wraparound PRS Bridge and Locking Stud Set and more Guitar Pickups & Parts at GuitarCenter.com.

Which is about twice the price, not quite as cool looking, but is an easy swap.

Image fail - you seem to have snagged the frame, not the image. ;)

I've contemplated that - another advantage of the Tone Pros is I can simply add the saddles later if I decide to go that route. I kind of want to hold off for now, though - between a $250 saddle, a $150 parts kit, and probably a couple hundred for routing and labor, that's a LOT of money. :lol:

the PRS stoptail stud spacing is 3 1/4". the gotoh 510 should fit since it's 3.23". you'll probably have to replace the studs, though.

i believe the tonepros is a direct replacement for the PRS stoptail.


also, have you checked if bridge radius will match the the fretboard radius with those?

Yeah, I fixed it while you were posting this :lol:

I'd say go Tone Pros then, so you have the option later. It's definitely a lot of money. Just looks like the better bridge too, to me anyways.

I was impressed with the Tone Pros bridge on my Schecter, too. Or rather, I didn't notice anything unusual at ALL about it, until I then went and set up my roommate's Les Paul for the first time, and was surprised when the bridge just fell off. :lol:

I think I have another $30 online coupon from Guitar Center, too. :yesway:

:lol: Honestly, the fact that I can take strings off without the bridge moving on me and the setup getting all screwy is probably a bigger incentive than the intonation.

Let me know what you end up doing. I would like to replace the bridge on my Korina. Also thinking of throwing graphtech acoustic saddles on my baritone, since it uses what appears to be the same saddles as the USA trem. Baritone + piezo = sweet.

Stew-mac also sells the locking studs by themselves. That could be a possibility.
