    Thanks! I'm happy with the way it came out despite not having one in front of me to reverse engineer.

    Absolutely beautiful work Marty! In spite of all the crap it brought out in the modern world, the fact the internet allows us to watch someone using their craft on the other side of the planet still amazes me.

    What scale length did you go for in the end?

    Thanks.... You aren't seeing it close up....LOL.

    Thank you!

    Thanks, I'm thrilled with the bridge and want to do another one just so I can use the bridge file...


    Thanks again. It's a Fender 25.5 " scale. The tension feels a bit looser with the tailpiece for some reason than what I'd expect.
