First Impressions

It’s done! The first bridge is completed! I will have more input by the weekend, but until then: here are a few pictures.

I put it on an old guitar of mine in place of a Floyd Rose trem. The weight reduction was massive! It seems to sound very well. I will prepare some sound samples eventually.

  3. Hey, this bridge looks great – had a few questions… do you sell it? I wouldn’t mind plopping one on a guitar in the near future. I also wanted to know about the route patter needed… is it simple like some headless bridges and able to just hang off the back/sit on the top? Or does it fit more like a strat / floyd rose bridge with springs and a claw?

  4. Hi Jon,
    yes I do sell them (although am sold out at this time, July 2009). Please see the cast-away strat conversion posts from April 2009 (http://guitarworks.thestrandbergs.com/2009/04/) for examples on how to mount. It is very similar to a Floyd-Rose.

    All the best,
