I want to upgrade the Nashville bridge on my black SG. How can I do, what are options?
Faber and Callaham both make ABR bridges and have Nashville conversion studs. Both are good, I prefer Faber bridge. The Callaham is too bright for me. It is made from steel.
Faber only sell these kits in metric. I want to use a Gibson bridge that is imperial so they will not fit.
I am not interested in using a metric bridge.
Do any of you know of any other companies that make conversion posts the same as these but in imperial measurements?
That isn't correct, these are imperial. Typically, when people use the Faber or Callaham conversation studs, they're using the corresponding bridges too.
Most people I know who go from the Gibson Nashville bridge to the Gibson ABR-1 bridge plug the holes.
Faber are metric.
Yes, Callaham are imperial but studs are not available separately.
I can use parts from Philadelphia but I prefer Callaham-like
I'm at a loss as to why people want to do this, but here you go.
Here is my pedal board.... I am concerned about tone loss.... should I use a .022 or .033 cap on my tone pots?
Yeah, I'm thinking maybe a 10uf ought to remove any questions about tone loss!
(Sorry about the snark, but I couldn't resist.)
BTW whose OTT pedal board is that anyway?
No clue just found it on the interwebz
Wanna get started on "True Bypass"?
I was concerned about directional cables, but I got all my patch cords off Ebay China....
Then you should be fine!
Just follow the glorious arrows for best good using!
If you need more capacitance....
Time to go 'air gap'
Now we are really getting off topic!
What kind of pasta maker is that?
Oops sorry! Rabbit hole alert!
I really should read back a bit before posting, but couldn't resist...
It's a variable air gap capacitor, the two sets of fins move in and out of each other to vary the capacitance, used in radio frequency stuff and high voltage applications too AFAIK - heavy duty kit!
but it makes pasta too right?
Marconi probably used them, and he was Italian, right?
Marconi, Macaroni.....all good with cheese!
For more fun
I prefer the Kalamazoo or Fulerton Mac-N-Cheese...
Haha, you guys are a crack up. But I get it - to the OP: I think what everyone is saying is, it's not so much an "upgrade" as a "change." I wouldn't expect any sonic benefit out of doing it, and you will actually be losing quite a lot of intonation adjustment (the reason the Nashville bridge was invented in the first place). It's an aesthetic thing only and there is nothing wrong with that, I'll betcha every person on this board has made a change to a guitar based solely on looks at one point or another.
