HI,

After months of researching and searching I have just bought my first Bacchus (Classic model) and am eagerly awaiting for it to arrive. I was wanting to change the tailpiece and bridge to an aged version ideally from Faber or Gotoh. Can anyone recommend whether these bridges are metric or imperial sizes? I read somewhere that they are the same as Gibson uses?


Any advice would be great


thanks

as far as the tail piece you could go with the GOTOH GE101A. These are metric, for MIJ guitars, and I don't believe these will fit a Gibson.

here is a thread I started for a similar issue

I purchased three GOTOH GE101A tail pieces: one in nickel, one in gold, and one in aged nickel aka 'relic.'
Each piece comes with the two posts & the two post anchors.

Sorry; can't help on the bridge. Good luck

I got in touch with a Gotoh supplier here in the UK and he said any bridge made in Japan should fit.

He suggested this one to go with the aged Gotoh tailpiece
