    I manufacture a Direct replacement bridge for your Nashville tunamatic

    No pot metal, no more corrosion, no more collapsing in the center, no more rotting out your saddles.

    This bridge is CNC machined from a solid block of aircraft quality Stainless steel to exacting tolerances.

    Through tests on different Les Pauls, I have found increases in sustain up to 3 seconds!

    The bridge locks into place with allen screws once the action is set and never changes.

    The best part is that the bridge installs with NO alterations to your guitar, it screws right into your existing inserts.

    These retail for 100 dollars each, for MLP members I am offering these for 75.00 plus shipping.

    Roman .. It's looks real nice ! But I'm a Historic LP kinda guy .. I bet if you made repro's of old ABR1's you'd clean up here !! Pigtail seems to do well with it !

    Bobbo, Keep in mind this is a replacement for the Nashville bridge. An ABR1 version is coming, as well as an aluminum version.
    What's next?? Titanium?? I can do that too!
    cheers,
    Roman

    It was asked if the thumbwheels were included;

    Here is the package;

    Bridge, one piece stainless thumbwheels and inserts.

    The thumbwheels are spring loaded which is a nice overkill touch (in my opinion)

    Unless some one was using this for a new build, the inserts would not be needed.
    The thumbwheels thread right into your nashville inserts

    Ps. sorry for the photos I am a guitar builder not a photo pro [​IMG]

    still in reverse engineering stage.

    Here is a survey question of sorts.
    What would be your ideal ABR1 style bridge???

    what is available is brushed stainless and polished stainless.

    I will check with my guy about doing a gunmetal finish. If possible, and If you buy one, the answer is yes.

    Roman,

    You may want to consider reverse engineering a Pigtail ABR-1! They seem to be in high demand, and in short supply, so Pigtail must be doing something right (but very slowly)!

    Jus to let you all know,
    An Abr1 version is in the works now.

    To all you epi guys; thank you for your interest, however there is not enough of a demand to do a bridge in the metric sizes.

    CNC start up costs are staggering!

    abr1 without the wire string retainer would do it for me.
