Wide Jaw


We’ve expanded our Stainless Steel jaw product line to include the Wide Jaw.  The larger Wide Jaw is found on vintage Steinberger “Wide 5” string bass, XQ Series and later model Steinberger basses made in Nashville. The Wide Jaw also fits the Hohner Jack basses and Spirit basses with Steinberger bridges.  We have never seen an original Wide Jaw stretch or break but since the Wide Jaw was made of the same metals used in the Vintage Jaw, the threaded rod will eventually wear down or strip the threads in the jaw due to the  softness of the original metals used. As a result, the string cannot be tuned to pitch because the threaded rod can no longer maintain tension for proper tuning. Our Stainless Steel Wide Jaw is the solution to the above problem.

 The Wide jaws will work with the following series basses:
• Steinberger Wide 5 string bass and later model Steinbergers made in Nashville
• Spirit bass with Steinberger bridge
• Hohner Jack bass with Steinberger bridge

The Wide Jaws do not include the threaded rod. The threaded rod for the Wide Jaw is a common 4mm/40 threaded rod.
