Recessed Tune-O-Matic with String-Through Body Mounting

On Flat Top bodies only we offer a recessed rout for our Gotoh Tune-O-Matic or TonePros Tune-O-Matic with a choice of 3 string-through patterns for $15. The strings go through our top-string-through ferrules and anchor in our standard guitar string ferrules in the back of the body.

Due to the bridge recess, a neck pocket angle is not required.

Three different String-Through patterns to choose from!

Recessed Tune-O-Matic with Arched String-Through Holes

Recessed Tune-O-Matic with Angled String-Through Holes

Recessed Tune-O-Matic with Staggered String-Through Holes

Flat Mount / Hardtail Bridge Routs

(Ground wire holes drilled to all Strat® hardtail bridges). The back side of these "vintage bridge" bodies are drilled 5/16" for the string anchor ferrules.


Vintage Style Strat®

String through holes only

For other odd hardtail bridges when the string holes are in the standard Strat® position. By aligning on these, you may drill mounting holes to mate with your bridge.



Narrow Spaced Strat®

Flat Mount Bridge Rout

The mounting holes are identical to the vintage flat mount bridge, but the string through holes are drilled larger.


Vintage Tele®

This pattern matches the vintage "ash tray" style bridge as well as our Vintage Tele Bridge and Gotoh brand replacements, (both standard and humbucker versions).
