NEED a hard tail bridge

OK guys, Im done debating and looking. I want a top mounted bridge. Prefer a single peice bridge like a gibraltar plus bridge. I would get a gibraltar plus, but it needs special routing on it. No string through bodied bridges.

If you guys know of something, lemme know!

Tight End, but it's probably 3 times what you'd want to spend

Aren't these things string through? If not, how much are they?

Its cool. I wish they made a super quality bridge like that. Im not wild about drilling holes through the body. I may change my mind, I have time. still need to finish some routing work.

Do you sell brass nuts rich?

They make a brass/bone mix, about $35 IIRC.

The Hipshot Baby Grand is very nice. It's what my Dad used on his guitar build.
