    Hi Guys,

    I want to replace the tune-o-matic bridge on my Starla, it’s become faulty and needs to be replaced.

    Seeing as the Starla came with a Grover tune-o-matic bridge, I want to see if I can replace this with an upgrade. Has anyone replaced the grover tune-o-matic bridge?

    Thanks,

    In what way did it fail? Is this common?

    Those nashville types are pretty sturdy, I have never seen one sink or break

    Yes it did fit mine, the fit was tight so getting the height set the first time was fiddly ( height adjust was somewhat hard to turn )
    To answer some of the other questions there are mods to make a Bigbsy work better as the bridge is meant to rock back and forth in this design.
    I've seen well loved examples with worn saddles and ovaled stud holes.

    Thanks for the feedback. Did you notice any loss of sustain or slinkier feeling strings or anything?
