Definately a job worth learning to do yourself. And as long as there is no fretwork needing done it's easy enough.

Did a bass and a strat there at the weekend myself for the first time, thought id make a pigs eye of it but it turned out great! I was recomended to use an analogue tuner but i ended up using one of those digital ones that simulates the analogue ones, worked fine.

If anyone has any ideas how to do a les paul juniorlet us know.

Wraparound bridge won't be as accurate. It's to do with the two screws that go into the guitar body(height of bridge) and the two at 9 o'clock to them(if that makes sense). Usually,the bridge goes ever so slightly diagonally top left down to bottom right. If that makes sense?

Thanks, but its two individual strings that are giving me trouble. They're not too bad so i think ill just leave it

Like I said they are not as accurate. There are bridges that are more "staggered" than a smooth wraparound,. That may help. Can't imagine you'd get one in a shop in dublin though.

You would get one direct from Gibson though.
Be prepared to regularly break strings due to the sharpness.
On the plus side your intonation will be perfect.

Im breaking strings at the bridge anyway so i may look into a new one, a friends going to the states soon, get him to pick one up


I always without fail snab A,E and D in that order at the bridge about every two to three weeks but I play a fair bit so its to be expected I guess.

Trick Sloaner taught me.

On the groove in your bridge go over the groove heavily in lead pencil next time you are changing a string.This should theoretically reduce friction and also soften up the contact point between the bridge and the string.
