göldo "3-Point-Vario" Tunamatic Bridge

Three points that make the difference

As we know from a fairly reliable source, the very first Tune-o-matic Bridge of Ted McCarty in 1954 looked quite different from the bridge that would go down in guitar history as the classic Gibson Tune-o-matic bridge. In this archetypal version, Ted is said to have held the string saddles in position with a few simple conical spiral springs but finally decided on a single spring clip to fix them in place. This was much cheaper to manufacture than the six individual springs, and the whole bridge also much quicker to assemble. The fact that they often liked to rappel was unfortunately accepted.
In addition, on this classic Tune-o-Matic bridge, the six screws for adjusting the octave intonation are anchored in the housing on the side opposite the screw heads. This means that the string saddles rest on four points - the two screw ends and the two side "shoulders". Which in turn means that tipping and rattling are pre-programmed! You know the problem...
We have now integrated the good elements of this original Tune-o-matic bridge into a new, innovative bridge unit and cut the octave screws to length in such a way that they just don't reach into the opposite edge of the housing, so that each string saddle only rests on three points - which gave this bridge its name. The result is an optimally solid construction that offers the best basis for a firmly articulated, sustain-rich and dynamic sound because no component tilts or rattles and wastes vibration energy! By the way, the string riders themselves are made of stainless steel - perfect for the sound and best against string breakage!
Apart from the fact that this bridge is virtually the original ancestor of the Gibson Tune-o-matic, we have equipped it with a distinctive göldo feature visible only from the bottom side: one of the two 4mm holes for the height adjustment screws is designed as a longitudinal hole, so that this bridge adapts to various spacings and can replace ALL Tune-o-matic bridges on the market.

The octave intonation is adjusted with slotted screws which, due to their construction, point towards the tailpiece or tremolo. Distance between bolts: from 72.3mm to 74.0mm; diameter of bolts: classic 4mm.
