Poll Replace Bendmaster Deluxe on an XA1420 with something simple!

Post by Coldwater on Fri May 30, 2014 9:40 am

Hello all,

I recently bought a super beat up XA1420 at a pawn shop and want to get it back into playing condition because i know it has the potential!

My Bendmaster Deluxe bridge which is missing the nut locks, and is in overall poor condition. Therefore, I am thinking of switching the bridge out to a single piece  stoptail/adjustable-stoptail/simple type of bridge. I think this will save me the time of messing with a Bendmaster system that might need a ton of new and rare parts and get me playing my Westone sooner and with better intonation. Also, I think that I could simply use the same stud holes already in the guitar for the new bridge. I really dont mind the idea of having the hole in my guitar from the Bendmaster system because as I said the guitar is beat up and I really just want to play it!!!!!! Of course I want to ask the gurus for their opinion before i make such a change to a beautiful guitar!

Also please let me know if you have any suggestions for a specific bridge. Im thinking a PRS style one because the PRS and more Fender similar than the XA1420- which has a 25.5 inch scale, and 350mm radius.

Thanks for the help,
