Black Embie-Matic Bridge Top without Base


The Embie-Matic is a high quality Melita style guitar bridge machined from high-strength aluminum. The flat pan-head screws locking the saddle clips in place allow palm space and a low profile. The materials are light weight, with precise tolerances, making it very resonant under string tension. Each Embie-Matic has it's own serial number, and is made and assembled with care and attention to detail. Proudly made in St Louis, MO.

This is the black Embie-Matic adjustable guitar bridge top. The bridge body is black anodized aluminum. The post spacing is 3 3/8" / 85.725mm, and it will drop right on to any existing Melita archtop bridge base. The outside string spacing is 2 1/16" / 52.38mm.

Our saddles are center notched for gauged string slotting files, and will need to be slotted upon installation and set-up. We are always happy to pre-slot your saddles, just send your preferred string gauges!
