A well-engineered system for adding acoustic sounds to your favorite Tune-O-Matic-equipped guitar.
That great Baggs acoustic tone is also available in a beautiful Tune-O-Matic style bridge. Each saddle contains a miniature high-output pickup. These six pickups can either be combined or can be used discretely for a hexaphonic output. It also works with the Ctrl-X for acoustic or electric sounds at the flip of a switch!
Imagine one guitar that is perfect for blues or rock and roll, has the ultimate clean sound, is great for jazz and has a great acoustic sound without feedback. Sounds like an expensive dream, but chances are that you already own this guitar. And all that it has been waiting for to unleash this hidden potential is the vibraton bridge pickup, the T-Bridge Acoustic Tune-O-Matic Bridge Pickup from L.R. Baggs.
When LR Baggs decided to apply their fifteen years of transducer design experience to amplifying the electric guitar, they were faced with the task of first choosing a guitar and then a bridge. But when they interviewed guitar makers about bridges, they found that there was no existing bridge that had the qualities that they were looking for. So they designed their own. By starting with a clean slate, LR Baggs did not have to shoehorn their pickups into an off-the-shelf bridge. They could then design the Tune-O-Matic bridge and pickups as an integrated system without compromise. The product of their research, the Tune-O-Matic X-Bridge is beautiful, responsive and dynamic, and has a jaw-dropping sound that redefines what an electric guitar can do.
The T-Bridge can fit onto many popular guitars equipped with tune-O-matic-style bridges without the need for serious modification to the instrument. It requires approximately .120" to .200" of clearance below the bottom surface of the bridge for the wires.
