Gibson® Low Profile Nonwire ABR-1 Nickel Set
ONLY 50 Bridges build for Crazyparts! Incl. Domed Thumbwheels
This ABR-1 is a vintage shaped repro bridge (based on Genuie Gibson TH-Collection Vintage shaped ABR-1) it was likely manufactured between 1960 and mid-1963, based on the nylon saddles and no retaining wire. Some time in the middle of the 1963 production year, Gibson began using "wired" ABR-1 bridges which implemented a retaining wire to hold the saddles in place. this bridge was manufactured before that transition took place and is correct for several models including SG/Les Paul Custom, ES-345, and ES-355 guitars manufactured from late 1960 - 1963. It would also be a great substitute for the difficult to find "thin" or "low profile" ABR-1 bridges used on ES-345 and ES-355 guitars with shallow neck angles manufactured from 1958 - 1960. Perfect for a vintage Gibson restoration or to add some vintage mojo to a modern Gibson guitar. This bridge comes with Brass saddles and screws.
