    Yes. But may I ask, and I'm not being facetious, why would one want to do a conversion to an ABR?

    Aren’t those studs meant for the Faber ABRN-style bridges? Meaning ABR-sized bridges with Nashville-style holes? If so, a Gibson ABR1 would not fit.

    If I' m not wrong there are 2 models :

    For Gibson ABR-1 bridge :
    iNsert-ING Faber iNsert = Nashville to '59 ABR converter studs, 7mm/6-32inch, Steel, nickel plated, glossy
    https://www.faberguitar.com/iNsert-...uds-7mm-6-32inch-Steel-nickel-plated-glossy_1

    For Nashville bridge :
    iNsert-MNG Faber iNsert = Nashville to '59 ABR converter studs, 7mm/4mm, Steel, nickel plated, glossy
    https://www.faberguitar.com/iNsert-...er-studs-7mm-4mm-Steel-nickel-plated-glossy_1

    Is it correct ? Thanks

    A message to Faber might be the best way forward here...
