Staytrem bridge for Jaguar and Jazzmaster.
The saddles are based on the Mustang design without individual height adjustments, this makes the bridge more stable.
The radius is preset to match the fretboard, available sizes - 7.25" or 9.5".
E to E string spacing is 52mm instead of the standard 55mm.
This overcomes a common problem of the strings being too close to the edge of the fretboard.
On the standard bridge the height adjusting screws can vibrate loose during playing causing the bridge to drop down.
The height adjusting screws are larger than standard and have plastic bushings to prevent them from vibrating loose. Our design feature for this is also used on the Johnny Marr Jaguar and Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster.
Another common problem with the standard bridge is that the intonation adjusting screws can vibrate loose and sometimes fall out.
This will not happen with the Staytrem bridge as the screws are held securely in place with small plastic retaining discs.
Intonation adjusting screws are hexagon and not Phillips, adjustment is easier with ball ended Allen key (included with purchase), this can also be used for the bridge height adjustment.
All metal parts are made from stainless steel.
Will fit as a drop in replacement for all Jaguars and Jazzmasters with vintage style bridge.
Will also fit Mustangs with vintage style bridge and Jagstang .
Will not fit guitars that have an Adjusto-Matic bridge.
New optional feature
We have had many requests for a non rocking bridge so we are now offering a solution as a free optional extra.
We can supply the bridge with nylon sleeves fitted to the support posts that will restrict any movement to a minimum so it will be more stable. These will fit US, Japanese and Squier VM Jaguars and Jazzmasters and any others with a 5/16” or 8mm holes in the thimbles.
(some MIM models have 7mm holes which will not fit).
For the following reason we do not recommend this option if you use the tremolo.
The Staytrem bridge is designed to rock back and forth with the action of the tremolo, just like the original Fender bridge. If the bridge does not move with the tremolo the guitar will constantly go out of tune.
If you would like your Staytrem bridge to be non rocking please make sure that you let us know by adding a note in the 'order and delivery comments' section when checking out and we will fit the nylon sleeves.
These can only be fitted to bridge before dispatch, cannot be retrofitted.
