In 2006, we designed our Danelectro/Silvertone replacement bridge to address intonation issues while also increasing sustain on some of Jeff’s beloved vintage instruments. Jeff says, "On some of the vintage and reissue Dano style guitars the little rosewood bridge saddle is just fine and groovy sounding, but it also left much to be desired for many players' needs." This bridge utilizes the classic three saddle design, with angled saddles added for better intonation, and the result is a guitar that plays in tune better, sustains longer, and has a more emphasized fundamental frequency tone. Our replacement bridge couples flat to the body to increase resonance transfer and uses the same three mounting holes of the original bridge, so there are no new holes added.* You can even use your old screws if you wish.

We originally partnered with CJ Guitar Tooling for manufacturing, but due to high demand both companies agreed we needed to contract out production. The result is a new and evolved nickel plated steel version, the DRB2 (Danelectro Replacement Bridge 2). The DRB2 enhances the overall harmonics and tone even a step further. We've added two extra screw holes so that the bridge can also be used for other brands of guitars and DIY projects. We like it so much we also use it on all of our hand built Model One guitars. You'll love what this bridge does for your guitar.

Installation only takes a few minutes, but in some cases will require the neck to be shimmed a little for better break angle. If you have a '60's Dano or Silvertone product you may have a neck angle adjustment screw built in the guitar already but, as always, we encourage professional installation by your local and favorite tech.

-This complete DRB2 bridge with saddles includes mounting screws, intonation screws, and saddles. We provide 5/16" Intonated Brass Saddles.
-Also available without saddles, see our other listings. The bridge without saddles is geared for new builds, rather than Dano/Silvertone replacement.

* The DRB2 is designed to fit vintage (1955 - 1969) Dano/Silvertone three point guitar bridges and 1990's - 2000's Korean reissue guitars.

-For Baritones: The DRB2 will fit most Danelectro Baritone guitars. However, some of the reissue models, particularly from the ’90’s, have the back mounting hole in a slightly different place, slightly closer towards the neck than vintage models. We’ve had a lot of customers use the DRB2 for Baritones of this style and have done so successfully by either: 1.) “Forcing” the back screw into place, it’s just a little bit off, 2.) Doweling the back hole and re-drilling for the DRB2 for a perfect fit or 3.) Utilizing the two, back, outside mounting holes in the DRB2 and drilling new holes in the guitar. Once again though, on a vintage Danelectro Baritone or a reissue with vintage mounting hole spacing, the DRB2 will be a direct installation. Due to the wound third string on most Baritone string sets flipping the center saddle over is recommended for proper intonation.
