Keeping a Low Profile

Those of you that have been with this blog for a while might recall one of the design issues I originally identified, namely that the height of the individual saddles were higher than an original Floyd-Rose. A while back, I made some prototypes to take care of this.

This first version has a “V” shaped groove in which the string runs.

The second version has been “flattened”:

Both versions work well and have their own distinct aesthetics. Let me know what you think!

  1. I like the “v” aesthetically, and it looks more “designed” that way, if that makes sense. Although, does it interfere with palm muting at all? I tend to prefer TOM-style bridges for rhythm playing as it really keeps the strings up and available for muting, so playability-wise I might prefer the flat machined top.
