Modern Gretsch Guitars

Modern pinned bridges


I have a 2013 6119-59 and just wondered how its bar bridge is attached. I can't see any pins but it isn't Gretsch pin them from underneath?


Yes. Restring it and you can see. Actually, you can probably loosen the strings enough to lift the bridge a little and see.

It’s not bolted on or screwed down. Instead, there are two little pegs sticking out of the body under the bridge. The bridge base has slots underneath for the pegs. You should be able to slide the bridge back and forth a little for intonation but not slide it up and down.


ah ok...interesting. Thanks for that.
