My bridge posts on my 59 are loose- are they supposed to be that way?

Recommended Posts

While I was troubleshooting my low E string on my 59 (because of the low E twang noise), I noticed that when I slid the bridge out of the post holder, the post receivers were securely pressed into the guitar body, but the posts were a bit loose, to the extent that they rattled a little bit. Is this normal? Thanks in advance for any info forumpeople!

This is normal  - and I know the TonePros advocates might think this is a bad design, in my case with my modified JTV-59 with Bigsby (see avator on left) - this JTV-59 Bridge post "slop" is beneficial for keeping my guitar in tune when using the Bigsby tremolo, the Bridge "pivots" like a Gretsch with Bigsby.
