This is a new version of the split saddle bridge. We have moved away from six separate plates and instead are using one piece that drops in. This makes it a little easier to keep track off while retaining the easy shim access.
This is a bridge with a split saddle nut. This provides a new level of adjustment for builders and musicians alike. The nut can slide back and forth with half an inch of movement possible. This allows for each one to be individually compensated for the clear intonation. Like a tune-a-matic bridge but with wood. This makes the top of the guitar lighter and it looks natural.
The bridge facilitates relaxing installation. There is a tolerance for where it is placed. When it is glued in the right area and adjusted it will perform as well, if not better than a compensated saddle.
For this item the bridge is shaped. The shape we have is our standard, if you would like something different or special, like a fish shaped bridge, we can do that. Choice of ebony or rosewood. I will do my best to ship these out within a day or two of receiving the order.
Please reach out if you're an interested builder or player.
The saddle plate is made of ipe, it has some color variation.
