Tune-O-Matic Bridge

Gibson’s first fully adjustable bridge was invented by Ted McCarty. It was first used on the 1954 Les Paul Custom. Each saddle is adjustable by turning a small screw, thus enabling guitars to be closer to perfect intonation (though no guitar is ever perfectly in tune across the full range of notes). The Tune-o-matic is also known as the ABR-1 bridge.
