About The Rick Bridge

The unique design of the M5 Mastery Bridge for Rickenbacker® features four mounting post screws that securely lock into the body-plate via two stainless cone point screws on each end of the plate. Posts won’t loosen during performance and the bridge will stay in place during string changes and vibrato use. Baseplate and body-plate are hand straight-line sanded like our original offset bridge. Optional bridge cover is hand finished like the baseplate and blends well with existing hardware. With around 50 lbs of pressure bearing down on two saddles, string energy is utilized unlike any other bridge available. The M5 has a vintage footprint and no modifications to the guitar are required.
