Because great guitars deserve this.

 

 

Our roller bridges are virtually exact duplicates for the bridges found on vintage Rickenbackers.  From the saddle adjustment screws to the locknuts to the size, profile, and material of the saddles, these bridges are almost indistinguishable from the ones that were fit on the classic guitars of the late 50s and 60s.  Original bridges are almost impossible to find, and these are the only replacement bridges on the market today.

Notice the attention to detail in these bridges.  The screws are correct, the nuts are correct, the saddles are tiered and shaped, and the rollers actually roll.  But beyond that, it's the small details that set our bridges apart.  For example, we have chosen not to de-burr the holes, just like the original parts. These are true duplicates of the originals, in all their glory and with all their character.

We offer three styles of roller bridge:
The 50s (V81) bridge: Our V81 bridge features sharp corners on the frame, phillips-head saddle screws, steel height screws, and no holes for bridge cover screws.  It is available in either chrome or nickel plate.
The more common 60s-'70s bridge: Rounded corners on the chrome-plated frame, slotted saddle screws, black height screws, o-rings, and holes for the bridge cover.
Our very own wide-spaced 660 roller bridge: With extra space between the saddles for the wider 660 neck.  Read all about it here.

Please let us know which style bridge you want.

Please note: Please make sure that the bridge you order is compatible with your baseplate.  Read this for more details.

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


The 60s roller bridge. Hand-shaped saddles, brass rollers, o-rings -- the whole shebang.

The 50s roller bridge. Just like V81...

And if you want a little color - try the Fiesta option...
