Title: A20 w/Wonderbar
Post by: Manfred23 on March 06, 2018, 10:41:08 AM
Many years ago I had an A20 hardtail - cherry burst. Dumbest thing I ever did was trade it in for a bass. I now may have a chance to pick up another A20 cherry burst but this one has a wonderbar on it. My question is - did the A20 ever come standard with a Wonderbar or was that an aftermarket thing people did? Since the posting doesn't have any other pictures than the front, I'm trying to find out if this was routed out for a trem style bridge or if it's solid and replaceable with an original hardtail.

I believe they did come standard with the wonderbar.  Though most of the guitars I have seen have had the hardtail bridge.  Those were great trem systems.

I think the answer might be "neither." :o

The Wonderbar was a top-mount device, so not needing the rear spring cavity.

If the Wonderbar was original equipment, fitting a hardtail bridge to it is possible, but maybe not a simple"drop in"replacement.
