    Faber hardware question

    I need your help about those new Faber conversion studs, iNsert-ING Faber iNsert = Nashville to '59 ABR converter studs, 7mm/6-32inch :

    https://www.faberguitar.com/iNsert-I...lated-glossy_1

    Do you think I can use those studs with a genuine Gibson ABR-1 bridge?

    Re: Faber hardware question

    What guitar are you looking to put on? The spacing is different on an ABR1 than a Nashville.

    If your guitar came with a Nashville - it won't work. Those Stud / Posts are for the newer USA line that come with an ABR1 with mounting bushings that started in 2017.

    What do you mean "The spacing is different on an ABR1 than a Nashville" ?

    I removed the big Nashville on my 2015 SG using those parts with Gibson ABR-1 :





    The spacing is the same, right ?

    [QUOTE=Scott L;2855995] The spacing is different on an ABR1 than a Nashville.

    “This system, with 4mm upper threaded posts, is reversible and requires no modification to your guitar, and will allow you to use either the Faber® ABR-1 style ABRN/ABRM bridges, or our revolutionary ABRL Tone-Lock? bridge. ”

    the Faber abr bridge is interchangeable with a Gibson abr1 ...am I missing something

    btw, OP ..what did Larry tell you ?

    English is not my first language sorry, what do you call spacing, diameter of holes for the studs or distance between the holes on the bridge ?

    I believe he’s referring to the actual distance between the holes of the bridge and you’re asking if the diameter of the studs will fit ok inside your bridge holes (?) ..again, I think they will based on the Faber site description...email Larry

    Re: Faber hardware question

    Assuming you are ordering in the EU from Fabergutiars.com. If you have a Nashville Bridge with the Post and Thumb Wheels as 1 unit, that mount in to the body with Bushings, then the part you list is correct to change over. - https://www.faberguitar.com/iNsert-I...lated-glossy_1

    With the new iNsert set up you can use the Gibson ABR1, Faber ABRH, or the Faber Tone Lock Bridge. Go back to this video and at 3:00 minute mark Larry shows all 3 bridges being put on the iNert posts.

    Ok, so the Faber iNsert converter studs, 7mm/6-32inch can be used with a Gibson ABR-1 and Faber ABRH, right?
