Thumb Wheel and Post
Brass Thumb Wheel, and Post for vintage Gibson ABR-1, Harmony, Silvertone, Kay Guitars.
In the process of recreating my version of the vintage Harmony H22 Bass pickup, I acquired a H22 bass missing the vintage correct bridge. I was able to make the rosewood bridge, but was surprised I could not find a proper brass thumb wheel and screw post. Having access a 1952 ES150, I took on a side project to recreate the thumb wheel and post. These are so close to the originals that I lost one of the originals for a time in my parts while examining them for accuracy. It took some time to find the vintage one. I found it by referencing detailed pics I took of them prior to recreating these. The posts are .765″ long and were designed for archtop style bridges. If there is enough demand I could get the longer posts for solid body guitars. In the picture gallery you can see my thumb wheels and posts installed my vintage ES150 and my H22 bridge.
Sold in pairs you get 2 wheel and 2 posts
