    Regarding radius ... my Epiphone Les Paul had a 12" TOM and a 14" fretboard. Because the TOM was rattling cheap China crap I took it to a luthier for a fret dressing and the installation of a Tonepros with blank saddles (not pre-slotted), which the luthier filed to 14" radius.

    The result was, that I now can use a much lower action ;) without any buzzing.

    A bar bridge, regardless of make, is pure simplicity. One part---that's all. No rattles, no issues.
