    I had my gtr checked over by my tech and he told me my ABR-1 bridge is incorrectly placed by about 1mm towards the rear of the guitar , solutions are find a ABR-1 replacement with longer saddle travel or move the bridge forward.

    I was reading about the Tone Pros AVR-II which is a drop in replacement, the literature onsite edroman site says there is increased intonation travel , has anybody seen one of these bridges and could confirm this, if so, about how much extra intonation travel is there ?

    thanks for any help

    i bought one thinking it would be superior to the gibson. on the bottom is the marking for gotoh. so it's little heard but basically they take a gotoh bridge, drill and tap for the grub screw, mark up the price a whole bunch, and sell it with advertising.

    spoke to a dealership in uk, apparently it only offers about 1mm over an ABR-1 , guitar is off to master luthier to correctly relocate the bridge by the error margin....................damn :mad:

    you can reverse the saddle on a gibson bridge to gain extra intonation range and it doesn't require a master luthier to do so!

    Couldn't you go up a size in the strings to bring the intonation back into range?

    +1, but there is some extra saddle travel in the TonePros as well...
