Mine. Barely any tension on bridge posts that way.

On yours even more important. The lesser the angle, the lesser the friction of strings going back and forth on saddles, with the tremolo action.

Biddlin, your guitar is filthy. Come on, show some class:rofl:

Tip: A paint brush does wonders before taking a picture of your guitar.

Yeah, I think I'll just stop posting anything for technical reference, the critics are too brutal.

Don't worry there are others who aren't clean freaks..

We just play the damn thing!!
That's OK, the Doc's culture and patois are rich with sarcasm. Lizzie is the first one with a Gibson style vibrola that was handy to photograph for comparison. Here is my G-400 Vintage with AllParts vibrola. It is much more like Tubescreamersrs.

Vinny has a steeper neck angle and thinner neck than Lizzie

This is pretty close to factory spec for a 2003 SG Special.

With the exception of the orange/amber switch tip, yours is a thing of beauty.

I have added roller bridges to all of my vibrola/tremolo/vibrato guitars, save the Strats, which I could give the technical reasons that it doesn't matter with a Strat trem, we'd all be bored and possibly unconscious. How much difference do I think they make? Not much, but the bridges are quite substantial and string breakage isn't an issue, so I'm happy. The Golden Age bridge I put on my Classic has improved the feel and stability quite a bit and maybe added a bit of sustain. It came with drop-in posts to accommodate its slightly different profile to the Nashville.
