Wilkinson Bridges

Twenty years ago the Wilkinson guitar and bass hardware was set up in California and then gradually grew up with its functional, simple and user friendly design, which by far has become the standards of the industry.

 

Discerning customers and professional players around the world admire and demand the guitars designed by Wilkinson.

 

The new series combines both the traditional styles and new unique features of Wilkinson designs so that no other guitars can surpass them in style and tone, which requires more attention we have to pay on every key section of the manufacturing process.

 

No matter what you want, a vintage style instrument or a cutting edge modern guitar or bass, the best hardware choice for you is listed here in our catalogue.

 

Wilkinson hardware is mounted as standard on electric guitars and basses.

WVCR Chrome – $32.99    WVCSBCR Steel Block – $36.99
WVCR-LH Chrome – Left Hand – $32.99
WVCD Distressed – $39.99
WVC
Since its introduction in 1954, this classic design is the most copied guitar vibrato bridge ever.
The design is so simple and eminently usable it is a challenge to improve on it, but improve it we did!
Faithfully reproducing the size and weight of the original, this is a direct retro-fit for the "real thing" but with the added benefit of a push-in vibrato arm (rather than the troublesome original screw-in type).
We also staggered the string holes in the sustain block allowing the strings to follow the natural intonation line of the saddles, keeping the strings' "angle of attack" over the saddle's intonation point more consistent, eliminating annoying string "hang-up" giving unrivalled tuning stability.
Completing the assembly are the bent steel saddles built from the same gauge steel as the originals to retain the "vintage sparkle" that this bridge has become famous for.

WVC SB
All the features of the WVC with the added benefit of a SOLID STEEL sustain block, a feature never before available in a vibrato bridge at this price point.

WV2CR Chrome – $36.99      WV2SBCR Steel Block – $38.99
WV2
Two pivot screws are considered by some to give a better fulcrum action than the six screw "classic design". If this is your choice then this is the "vintage" bridge for you. This bridge is supplied with pivot posts that utilise inserts to give them the structural stability needed when only two fulcrum posts are used. Adjustable for height, this bridge can be "Floated" above the guitar body for ultra smooth vibrato effects. Push-in vibrato arm, vintage spec bent steel saddles and "stagger drilled" block are all featured on this model.
WV2 SB
Same specifications as the WV2 but with a SOLID STEEL sustain block.

WV6CR Chrome – $31.99      WV6SBCR Steel Block – $36.99
WV6
Providing a bridge which offered the unsurpassed "tone transfer" of a
6-screw pivot system but with the smooth fulcrum action of a 2 pivot set-up was a challenge we could not resist.
By utilising the unique Wilkinson "5+1" knife-edges it is now possible. One hole to locate the vibrato laterally whilst the remaining 5 elongated slots eliminate the chance of screws binding in the holes, resulting in a "return to original position" second to none! Push-in vibrato arm, vintage spec bent steel saddles, and "stagger drilled" block are also included on this model.

WVPCR Chrome – $42.99     WVPGD Gold – $59.99
WVPCSBCR Steel Block – $46.99
WVPC
A modern twist on the classic design. Ultra smooth under a player's hand, with a sleek, low-profile surround restricting the sideways movement of the SOLID STAINLESS STEEL saddles, the WVP range of vibratos is the ultimate in comfort and performance. Ideally suited to more contemporary guitar designs, this family of bridges looks far more expensive than it is.
Features include a stamped steel "heat hardened" top plate with
6-screw pivot mounting. Push-in arm and Wilkinson design
"stagger-drilled" block for unrivalled tuning stability.

WVPC SB
A solid steel sustain block creates the ultimate WVPC bridge.

WVS50K Chrome – $42.99
WVS50
Featuring the exclusive Wilkinson knife edge design, these precision-machined vibrato systems feature steel base plates, push-in arms and 'locked-down' ultra smooth stainless steel saddles for perfect 'return to zero' performance every time.

WVS5011K Chrome – $1.99
WVS50
Featuring the exclusive Wilkinson knife edge design, these precision-machined vibrato systems feature steel base plates, push-in arms and 'locked-down' ultra smooth stainless steel saddles for perfect 'return to zero' performance every time.

WVP6CR Chrome – $2.99    VP6SBCR Steel Block – $8.99
WVP6
A 6-screw vintage-style system but with the smooth fulcrum action of a 2 pivot set-up. The unique Wilkinson "5+1" knife-edge eliminates the chance of screws binding in the holes, resulting in a "return to original position" second to none! Push-in vibrato arm, stainless steel saddles, and "stagger drilled" block make this an ideal upgrade for your old vintage bridge.
WVP6 SB

Solid steel sustain block version of the WVP6.

WTBCR Chrome – $9.99      TBD Distressed Chrome – $4.99
WTB
This classic 3-saddle design has been around for over 50 years and is still regarded as the ultimate "Tone machine". Now with the staggered brass saddles, we have achieved individual string intonation never before available in a design of this type. The baseplate is a faithful reproduction of the original and is steel – this is very important in a bridge of this style due to the effect it has on the magnetic field of the pickup mounted in it.

WBBCCR Chrome – $5.99    BBCBK Black – $5.99
WBBCCR-LH Chrome – Left hand – $5.99
WBBC
This bass guitar bridge is a perfect example of the saying, "less is more". Authentic barrel-style brass saddles mounted on the correct gauge bent steel baseplate creates the perfect reproduction vintage bass bridge, as fitted to the original instruments. Whether you are looking to replace your existing bridge or creating a handmade instrument, this should be your first choice for "classic tone".

GTBCR Chrome – $6.99        GTBLCR Aluminium – $4.99
GTB
This style of "wrap-over" guitar bridge/tailpiece combination has seen a resurgence of popularity in the last few years.
Its appeal and sound quality lie in the simplicity of the original design. However, individual string intonation left a little to be desired. Now with the addition of a movable G and B saddle, many different string gauges can be perfectly tuned to make your guitar sound even better.
