  • Need a Nashville type bridge to replace ABR-1

    I recently swapped pickups and installed a new wiring kit in my Les Paul Custom. Well, while I'm the upgrade mode I thought it would be a good time to replace the gold ABR-1 that came stock on my Gibson CS-356. I prefer the Nashville type bridge on my Custom (yes, I know it isn't "historically" for Les Pauls but this isn't about a LP, but is for my 2004 Gibson CS-356. I'm looking for ideas on the best way to do this would be... since the studs are spaced different I can't just pull off the one bridge and slap on the other. But I don't want to have to drill the top on the CS-356 either. Anybody making a "conversion kit" for the different studs? I am trying to get away from the wire on the ABR (mine buzzes even after I tried to tighten it down) and I like the longer range on the Nashville when it comes to setting the intonation, etc. So anybody got any ideas?

    After more research I ended up ordering the TonePros AVR2 G-Formula replacement

    bridge. It should be here next week and I'll do a report once I get it installed.









    Here's a pic that is similar to what it will look like on my CS-356

    (albeit I don't have the Bigsby, etc.)
