I have no intention of getting one, I just thought it would be neat to see how one would look on my Wolf using Photoshop.augustwest1 wrote: ↑Sat Nov 14, 2020 8:11 pmWhat jalevinmd said -- they look great and function well. (Better than the original Gibsons if you ask me.)
But it's almost certainly a moot point in your case LL72. You can plug a toaster or a lamp into the same power outlet (in the US). But you can't drop a Kluson bridge onto the posts of any old guitar. True of Klusons; true of all bridges.
That said, you could mod your guitar for a Kluson bridge. I don't do that sort of work myself, but I'm guessing that all the tried-and-true folks in these parts would (rightly) charge you more for the mod than you paid for the guitar itself.
Bill...I totally agree. I never got the slanted bridge concept. Seems like there's unnatural tension placed on the strings at the saddles. Gibson has been doing this for more than 60 years. I had a Scott Walker guitar built several years ago. I bought a bridge from Alembic for him to use and damn if he didn't install it at an angle. It was so weird.lbpesq wrote: ↑Mon Nov 16, 2020 11:02 amI just checked out several Eastwood Wolf’s listed on reverb and they all have the original bridge mounted at a slant! Don’t know why they would do this? Wolf’s bridge wasn’t mounted at a slant. I would expect a slanted bridge to narrow the potential range of the saddles when setting intonation. I assume they have a reason, just can’t imagine what it would be.
I'd have to measure mine but I believe the saddle travel on a tune-o-matic is less than on a harmonica. So presumably it's angled to allow for a more useable intonation range. That said, on an Eastwood, rather that plugging and redrilling for the harmonica you'd be better off just routing a larger cavity for a brass retainer block drilled for the Kluson. No refinishing either! OR just get a Wolf from the OPBudman wrote:I saw a Eastwood wolf for sale on reverb and it was upgraded with dimarzio pick ups wados buffer and a harmonica bridge . I am guessing the harmonica bridge had at least the same spacing as the one the Eastwood came with because it was mounted in the exact same spot as the original bridge on a angle ,I would think it someone had to plug up the old holes and drill new ones they would of put it on straight ,parallel to the brass pickup surround ,like on jerry's wolf? I totally wrong but it was definitely on a angle and did not look quite right I never saw a harmonica bridge put on at a angle.
