Introducing the “The Savvy” - An intonated wraparound tailpiece for Gibson guitars made between 1961 and today.

Like our Stud Finder Bridge (for Gibson’s made from 1953 - 1960), The Savvy Bridge was designed with input from dozens of Nashville studio guitar players to get the intonation line, string spacing, and sound just right. The Savvy uses a custom-designed alloy for improved tone and sustain. 

The Savvy Bridge is an intonated wraparound tailpiece to be used as a direct replacement for the original Gibson bridge.

The Savvy Bridges features:

  • Compensated top for accurate intonation.
  • Offset string holes that allow strings to line up over pickup poles and fretboard correctly.
  • Clean break-angle to do away with “sitaring”.
  • Custom alloy for improved sustain.

I checked out MCB after hearing about the Stud Finder as I was looking for something for my 68 sg Junior…. These have the parallel posts so different from earlier 60’s Gibson models ….. it works and sounds great … intonation is spot on …. I would add that locking posts are a good addition as in the case of my guitar I had to bring the bridge a fair way back on the bottom e side and they help to stop bridge from rising forward … thanks


Sounds great. Money well spent.

Looks Amazing

I got the Aged Nickel for my 2011 Gibson Melody Maker and it looks amazing. Unfortunately it didn’t match the light aging of my Studs so I sent it back and got the Nickel.

Installed the “Savvy” bridge on my 1963 Gibson Melody Maker and it totally transformed an already great sounding guitar into an even better one!

Best intonation … as good as my Strat now!!

I tried the mojo axe, and it was good… but not perfect. But the savvy is spot on. It’s perfect for my 2018 Sg junior. My intonation on this guitar is now just as good as my strats’ intonation. Unreal!
