Because great guitars deserve this.

 

 

If you've got yourself a 660, 660/12, 660TP, or the brand new 1993Plus, there's a good chance that you bought it because of the wider neck.  You've probably also noticed by now that you don't get to actually use all of that extra width, as the strings are pinched in from the edges.  "Why is that?", you ask.  Well, it looks to us like those guitars use bridges designed for a narrower neck; they simply don't have the breadth to take full advantage of the extra width.

Not to worry -- we've got this sussed.  We're happy to offer a drop-in replacement bridge with wider saddle spacing that lets you move those strings right up to the edge of the neck so you can use every bit of that wood for which you paid so dearly.

This is a cool bridge, and it will look right at home on your guitar.  It's modeled on the early Combo bridges, but with classic 60s appointments like slotted saddle screws, plain steel lock nuts, and -- if you want 'em -- little black o-rings on the height screws.  If you've got a 660/12, 660TP, or 1993Plus, you're sitting even prettier: the 6-saddle configuration will give you more of that quintessential fat RIC 12-string sound.

The cresting wave is an iconic guitar design.  The wider neck on the 660 series and the 1993Plus are a welcome nod to contemporary tastes.  Isn't it time to make your guitar play the way it looks like it should?

Just in: If you've made your guitar into a 665 by replacing the stock trapeze with an Accent, we've got a wider roller bridge just for you.  With all the vintage appointments, it's the final touch in your transformation.

For looks, quality, and accuracy: there is simply no other choice for your Rickenbacker.

Compare the two bridges. Ain't no way that 12-saddle bridge can position those strings like this.
