Thanks,
Hi,

All the ObG that I own or have owned have had Japanese bridges, tailpieces and tuners. I bought a Gibson ABR bridge once and it did not fit the studs of my ObG so I had to sell it again..

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Joop

Right now it seems like every place is sold out of Gibson Historic spec tall rings. There are DMC and Fatboy etc but they want hundreds of dollars for them! Anyone know where these can be found? The neck should be 1/4" tall and the bridge should be 1/2" tall.
Hi, forget my ignorance but why would you need higher pick up rings? Is is because that is historically more accurate or is there another reason?

Stunning guitar btw, congratulations!!

Vintage tone requires time, not technology
