So, in my hunt for a replacement bridge for my LTD SC500, I am pretty set on at least trying out a Wilkinson brass roller bridge with locking saddles. There are, however, a couple things making me hesitant. First thing being saddle spacing. The stock bridge has a string spread of about 2 1/16", while the Wilkinson is 2" dead. Will this be a noticeable change over the stock spacing? The other concern I have is that I tend to string my guitar with fairly heavy gauge strings to accommodate drop C tuning, typically having a .58 or .60 as the 6th string. I was reading through some reviews reporting that larger gauge strings don't seat very well in the roller due to each roller having the same width of groove. And yes, the guitar I would be using this bridge with has a string-through design, rather than a trem which is what these bridges are typically used with. I'm really just looking to hear from other people that have had experiences with this bridge & what did you think of it?
