NOTE: This bridge is best suited for carved top guitar bodies (SC-1, VIP, Carved Top Tele® and Carved Top Soloist). It is difficult to achieve lower action on flat top guitar bodies (Strat®, Tele®, etc.) when using this bridge. Therefore, this bridge is only recommended for carved top bodies.

The Gotoh 510 bridge consolidates the normal 2-piece bridge and stop tail piece set up into one superbly designed piece. Secure and solid, it sustains extremely well allowing your strings a single termination point. This sleek and compact bridge is an ideal mate for our VIP and SC-1 style carved top bodies. A neck pocket angle of 1-1/2 to 3 degrees is necessary for best set up.


  • String spread is 2-1/16" (52.39mm).
  • Spring clips lock the bridge securely on to the mounting studs.
  • Specially designed studs lock securely to the body.



(Click on images to enlarge).

On a new Warmoth Body purchase, we can rout the correct angle in the neck pocket for just $10.00.


If you supply us with the studs and inserts or purchase a G510 bridge on the same order as your body, we can install the inserts and studs including ground wire for just $10.00.

Not so good tone, verbose
I'm used to TOM bridges and strat bridges, and I don't really like this bridge. The tone gets poor when the bridge is at high height.
It's VERY annoying to change strings because you need to remove all strings or tune down a lot in order to install just one new string.
If you install the strings as you're supposed to do with this bridge, you will see all the string balls - and I think it's ugly if they are colored.
There were no allen screws included when I ordered it with a new Warmoth guitar, very bad.

Apart from the fact that the bridge studs are a little loose when strings are not installed, this bridge seems to be of very high quality!
However, I will never buy this bridge again, because of sound, what it looks and feels like, and how annoying string changing is.
