Hi!
I'd like to have the measurements of the U.S. Standard X-Bridge as I'd like to install it in my guitar.

I need the exact measurements of the baseplate and post spacing, both in millimeters.

I know the post spacing is 2.2" which equals 55.88mm, but would like to have official confirmation on the millimeters measurement since I don't know how accurate the unit conversion is. My guitar's bridge post spacing is 56.11 mm, very close, but I wanna know if it'll work.

Thanks for your help!

I made this diagram with the dimensions of the X-Bridge for you. I hope this helps :)

Thank you Justin!
I think it fits, very very tiny difference.

On that diagram the height is missing, can you get me that as a last favor please?
Wanna have it just in case, but I do think it'll be a drop-in replacement for my guitar!

Hey! I'm here again!

Another measurement request!! (Sorry to bother you again :D)

Can I get a spec on the depth of the block? that would be of huge help as I recently got noticed from my brand's customer service that the block on my guitar is bit shorter and has a slight angle regarding bridge standards.

Thanks! I'll be waiting for your response.

Hi Walter,

Bryan here... can you clarify what measurement you need?

The bridge we currently offer as the X-Bridge does not look like the one in your picture. The block extends the width of the pivot plate because the arm threads into it.

Please call 805-929-3545, ext. 111, to discuss it in detail.

Hey Bryan, thanks for replying.

I got that pic from ebay some time ago, it was the X-Bridge! the other pics I have prove it! haha But well if you say that now the block extends to the pivot plate then even better!
Here's an image of another bridge (not the X-Bridge), added a diagram to show you what measurements I need exactly.

Hope all is clear this time!
Thanks

Hi Walter,

On your picture, there are three measurement requests.

Here are your answers from shortest to longest:

Thickness of the block is 0.55"

Depth of the block from the underside of the plate to the bottom of the block is 1.575"

The length of the block from end to end is 2.925"

I hope those are useful numbers.

They are definitely useful!
Thanks Bryan! This is just what I needed.

Have a nice day.
