Good replacement for when the rosewood has had its day
Gain_Badger, 26.07.2018
The Korean re-issue guitars from the late 90's-early 2000's were fantastic guitars ( some later models had the same bridge too ). They had everything that makes Danelectro guitars great. Quirky, fine sounding and a slab of rosewood on a flimsy metal plate for a bridge. Over time, the rosewood develops chinks, chunks and chavs where the strings ( particularly the wound ) dig in. Palm muting and bends make this worse. It is still possible to get the rosewoods, even obtaining a specially cut one to improve the intonation is possible. Possible, but quite a search.
Even with a new wood, the intonation is roughed out. It's close enough for rock'n'roll, no doubt, but it isn't perfect.
The plate the rosewood sits on is prone to bending over time. Add heavy strings, heavy palm muting and the bridge just isn't up to the job.
This solves many problems in one fell swoop. Indeed, something similar has cropped up a time or two for Danos over the years and has been fitted to Deluxe models previously.
Individual string height adjustment!. Individual string intonation!.
It's not as easy as a Telecaster or Stratocaster to adjust as the string needs to be slackened and moved aside. A lock screw needs to be undone ( this is for intonation ), then the height and fore and aft adjustment can be done. Small changes, lock the screw back down and check. It takes time, but only needs to be done once. Once the lock screw is done up, a check on the height screws is a good idea to get some load on them so they don't undo with vibration.
Changing strings is easier now as the strings go through a hole rather than hook to the rear of the plate. What an innovation :-)
Sound wise, the sound is brighter. There's more ring to the sound compared to the rosewood. It's a brighter, more twangy sound. Very well rounded clarity and projection. Not unpleasant at all. The guitar still retains all the Dano character we know and love them for.
Well worth it to keep these fantastic guitars in good shape and the ease it brings to restringing, intonation and height adjustment can't be overstated.
Cons?, well, it does change the sound and looks.
Easy to fit. remove the rear screw from your current bridge. Drop this on the front screws. Refit the rear screw. Done!. That simple. Then set it up.
