    I need low profile TOM bridge for an old italian LP copy - Gherson.
    Before few years I replaced original bridge (unfortunately lost) with
    ABR bridge. I must take down cca half centimetre from bottom because
    bridge is too high.
    when I last time sand the bottom of the bridge for final adjustment, I
    lost one screw.
    I be very happy if enyone now where I may buy new (or good used) low profile TOM bridge, better nashville than abr.

    This is height comparision with epiphone dot studio bridge:

    You might ask Tim at Tru-Arc, he does a low-profile bridge that would fit the bill it's called a Low-Rider http://www.truarcbridgeworks.com/ and his bridges are far better than the TOM in my opinion. I replaced my Gretsch bridge with one of his and couldn't be happier.

    Thanks, Tru-Arc look nice but for that guitar I need something with
    adjustable intonation. This Gherson have some intonation issues on
    fifth and sixth string.

    Check out the specs on Schaller's roller TOM bridge.
