Bridge
In the image of its predecessor, the Randy Rhoads 1974 Les Paul Custom carries a Tune-o-matic (ABR-1) bridge that is made from zinc and plated in gold. This bridge provides a firm seating for the strings, allowing the player to adjust and fine-tune the intonation and string height in a matter of minutes. It also yields excellent coupling between strings and body, maximizing resonance, tone, and sustain. Bridge
Tailpiece
In classic form, the Tune-o-matic bridge is combined with a separate "stopbar" tailpiece, which is essentially a modified version of the earlier wraparound bridge that's designed to further enhance the connection between the strings and the body. The Randy Rhoads 1974 Les Paul Custom's stopbar tailpiece is also plated in gold. Tailpiece
