126 JimmyR 1 week ago The SSLVO I have comes with the Gretsch Adjustomatic and the Gibson ABR-1 fit straight onto the same base. Other Gretsches I have had with Space Control bridges and I was relieved that the Gibson ABR-1 bridge fit straight onto those too. The Adjustomatic is simply a Gotoh ABR-1 style bridge. I like the Gibson better because it has brass saddles rather than zinc, and for whatever reason it just sounds better to me. Plus I get the Gibson Historic ABR-1 without the wire, as I mentioned earlier. The saddles seem tighter in the bridge and there is no rattling or anything. The only downside is that the Historic no-wire ABR-1 comes with no saddle slots, so you either have to slot it yourself or get a tech to do it. I have learnt to do it myself and have found ways to reduce the friction at the bridge to the point where it is not responsible for any hang-up which could cause tuning issues. It's not that difficult really, but requires a steady hand and good eyesight! If you cut the slots with a round bottom and make sure it is all nice and smooth you will have few tuning problems. A good guide for string depth for the wound strings is around half the width of the string. Then adjust for the radius of the frets.Believe me, the more you play the guitar the better it will stay in tune. It's all a matter of keeping newish, clean strings on the guitar and restring properly with little excess string on the tuner post. Properly cut nut slots of the correct depth will cure all of your problems.
