Faber® Tone-Lock™ Bridge Our exclusive “No Gap” technology is also available in our Tone-Lock™ Bridge. Light years ahead of the usual “set screw” method of locking a bridge to the studs, one look at our system will show it’s design superiority and how it actually can increase sustain. With our system, you wont damage your bridge post’s threads – a common occurrence with the set screw method. The Tone-Lock™ Bridge, just like our non-locking ABR-59 bridges, features removable saddles. Standard saddles have starter notches dead center, but optional saddles without notches are available. “Universal,” in that lock nuts are provided in each kit for either 6-32 thread pattern (used on Gibson Tune-o-Matic equipped guitars prior to the introduction of the Nashville bridge, and currently on the “Historics”) or 4mm, for use on many imported guitars and on the all Faber® replacement 4mm bridge studs (iNsert™, BSWKIT™, NSWKIT™ and E-Sert™). Also available, the Faber® HYBRIDge™ Option
This option replaces the nickel plated brass or natural brass saddles (depending upon the standard saddles for the bridge you are ordering) for the wound E-A-D strings with TITANIUM saddles. Using titanium gets rids of the muddiness that can sometimes occur on the lower strings. Combined with the warmth of traditional brass saddles for the plain strings, the HYBRIDge™ Option creates a more balanced, focused tone for your guitar!
