Hi there. Can anyone let me know the size of the allen key for adjusting the bridge on a 1980 450B please?
I'm in Greece and the "trial and error" method is not so easy ......
Thanks for any help you can give me on this.

Hi Steve. I have a 450B also and I scratched my head wondering what Allen wrench fit too. I finally decided to replace the original bridge with a Hipshot A style bridge in chrome. There bridges are very well built. Check 'em out. The 3/4" spaced bridge fits perfectly. End of problem!

The Allen wrench for adjusting the string height is 1.25mm and the Allen wrench for adjusting the string length is 2.75 mm. The standard (SAE) wrenches that will fit are 3/64” and 7/64” for both adjustments.:thumbsup
