    Faber makes great stuff. I believe Historic Makeovers uses Faber.

    I myself like the Pigtail. But both are good components. upload_2018-2-8_11-56-2.png

    I've gone Faber mad and equipped TOM guitars with their stuff. Locking bridges are fantastic.

    I just came across this thread and got excited there was a sale today. Apparently that was Memorial Day 2016, oops!

    Anyway, I am wondering if anyone has compared Faber to Babicz FCH? I did a search for Babicz on this forum but found nothing.

    Actually Faber does have a sale today so I just bought a bridge and tailpiece for my 2014 Traditional along with the insert kit that I need to change from the Nashville.

    I do have a Babicz here but it will go on my incoming Burny singlecut.

    Can't say much about Faber hardware that hasn't been said already. Bought the full kit and swapped out the Gibson stuff on my R8. Night and Day improvement in tone and sustain. Fitment between the Gibson bridge, tailpiece and their studs was garbage.
