    This company just came out with a new replacement bridge. Looks good!

    This wouldn't happen to be your company, would it?

    Has anyone tried one of these Stud Finder bridges?

    Looks like an ugly version of Dan's mojoaxe bridge....

    The additional material that makes contact with the treble-side stud makes sense to my engineering brain. Also curious about the offset string holes which allegedly put the strings directly over the pickup pole pieces. I have Mojoaxe bridges on both of my Specials. Strings are aligned fine on my '59, but they're way off on the '74.

    When you say "Dan's mojoaxe bridge...", is the implication that "Dan" of MojoAxe is around MLP at all?
    If he is, I want to shake (metaphorically) his hand. My '52 was excellent before I fitted a MojoAxe.
    But after fitting it, playability and sound became sublime. What an astonishingly good product :applause:

    I had no idea, not a clue (even in the name)
    @Danelectro - man, big, big, big, big, big, big thanks and respect.
    A great product which does a great job.

    Thatbis because in the early 60s gibson moved the bridge studs and went to the lightning bolt style bridge.

    Looks like a development of the Mojoaxe concept, further sacrificing the vintage correct look to have more metal to metal contact at the studs.

    I have the Mojoaxe on my ‘56 Special and am happy with the balance between aesthetic and improvement in intonation and tone, but I do have it raked out fairly on the treble side still and I can see the possible benefit of this design...I’d like to see how it looks on a vintage wrap tail Gibson.

    I agree, the design changes make sense to me. I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more traction here.

    Did you watch the video? Tom Bukovac (Nashville session player) has one on a mid 50's Jr. Looks fine to me.

    Ah yes, just saw that. It certainly isn’t an eye sore but it’s more obvious than the Mojoaxe. I think if I didn’t have the Mojoaxe I’d certainly consider this but I highly doubt there’s going to be enough difference between the two to justify the purchase for me.

    I have the Mojoaxe CWT on both of these, the 59 is aligned pretty well, but the 74 is way off.
