    Hi,

    Does somebody already tried to install another bridge on the new Player models? I'm more into the classic 3-saddle-bridge. Would it just be a drop-in? :)

    Thanks a lot!

    Greetz,
    René

    I’ve seen “Conversion” bridges that have the opposite mounting holes for the type of bridge it is. Like 3 holes on vintage style bridges and 4 holes on modern bridges. Think Gotoh do something like that.

    No conversion bridge needed. The new Player series uses a classic 3-hole mounting pattern just like its predecessor, the MIM Standard.

    Fair enough. I don’t keep up to speed with all their different specs.

    I'm assuming that's a typo - the Player, like the Standard it replaces has a 4 mount hole "vintage" layout. A vintage style 3 barrel bridge is a drop in replacement, as are the Gotoh GTC201/202.

    That would be great.

    I think about a Göldo vintage bridge or a Kluson HW40c when it comes down to put on a modern bridge.
