Hi!

Just wondering which Tune-o-Matic bridge would fit a Peerless Journeyman (Doc could probably answer this for me)

I'm a little confused as to the difference between ABR-1 and Nashville bridges etc.

Thanks

If your primary purpose in wanting a tune-o-matic bridge is a way to fine-tune the intonation then I would buy a tune-o-matic mounted on an archtop style bridge so you dont have to have holes drilled. Honestly, I personally wouldn't do it, but you aren't asking me that question so I will refrain from elaborating on that.
Needless to say, if you are going to do it, with either the nashville or the abr you will have to drill holes for the posts. The nashville is on most or all gibson solidbodies. I had one on my Gibson les paul studio, which I sold and regret to this day.. sort of like a g/f you broke up with for the wrong reasons. It know for certain though that it has a longer range of adjustment than the abr and thicker studs. The primary reason that people go from a nashville to a abr-1 is "vintage looks" or for replacement on a vintage model.

Hey Thanks Voodobop

I'm not gonna be drilling any holes. I want a tunomatic on an wooden archtop style base. I want the tunomatic for intonation purposes and for sustain.. it has a wood bridge now and its very dull.. I dont like woode brdiges in general.
Thing is the string spacing on the Journey man is a little bit wider for some reason than the standard gibson spacing.. so i'd have to get one un-grooved and get my luthier to do it.

thanks for the reply.

Seems like I've seen a type of tune-o-matic style bridge somewheres that allows the saddles to be adjusted laterally for differing string spacing. Someone else will have to ring in on specifics there, however, because this is just a vague recollection of mine.

Or, if you know the exact spacing/width, you might could look up something specifically for it. It would seem a little strange to me that this one Peerless model would be totally unique in that respect. But what do I know.
