Just in! Softbrass ABR-1 Saddles Version II
here are some feedbacks about our Area59' Softbrass Parts...
Wow, these saddles are incredible! They instantly improved the sound of my guitar which has an original stock Gibson ABR-1 at least 25%!! The mushy, sort of feeble attack that has bothered me for years is GONE - now it has that famous clicky thunky attack that everybody wants. It made the guitar so much better sounding and SO MUCH more fun to play, I can hardly believe that just changing the saddles could do that much. I'm amazed. What a great product!
The greatly increased clarity and definition in the sound is just amazing. it's a whole different guitar now, a MUCH better one.
Today i installed my new Ltd ed ABR1 vintage shape on my 2019 60th anniversary 59 LP.
My guitar has better parts already. Gibson claimed their anniversary models are closer to the original as before.
Although I was sceptic that the new bridge could deliver an even better sound, I pulled the trigger and ordered one. I got surprised before by crazyparts (e.g. PAF covers copperless nickel plated, 550K tvt pots compaired to VIPots).
At first sight the new bridge wasn’t that different. A little less rounded edges than the anniversary bridge and the new saddles with wider edge. Looser fit of the saddles and screws as described on the website. After I slotted the saddles, I put on the same strings to compare the bridges soundwise.
Immediately I could hear a difference in acoustic resonance when played unplugged. Nice ring and a little louder.
OK, time to connect the amp with a bluesy setting and a few pedals.
I could feel the guitar breath more. The playability is a lot easier because the loose feel of the sound. More sustain and note separation. An open sound, better than before, even it was already a near perfect guitar to me.
Now the guitar rings more on cleaner settings, with a little more low-mid quacky sound on the attack. More detailed.
The ear-piercing frequency on the high E and B string (bridge pickup) is less pronounced (4KHz+), although with more presence/brilliance. More balanced voice on the bridge pickup. Just like I wanted. A winner to me. A decent upgrade for the tone purist. Worth every penny.
Another piece of the puzzle.
Keep up the good work!

It’s impressive how much the correct bridge changes and makes it vintage sounding.
I have a R8 from 2008 with 50’s wiring, kluson tail piece and Spirit of 59 from Amber PU (another German product!!)
And I now have the LP tone I have been searching for, it’s been a journey!
Don't stop at the top!
