    Would a Gibson TOM bridge assembly replace a Jin Ah on an ES 335 Samick Artist (SAT 650), or is there a metric<->english conversion problem?

    Thanks!

    if it has the big posts that can be turned with a screwdriver, then not even close.

    this is what you want, made by gotoh. allparts sells them.

    Thanks for the info. I think I have an Allparts distributor in town.

    My Sheraton has something like that. The Samick's bridge has 1/4" posts and the tailpiece has 7/16" posts, but I don't know what's considered "big."
