    The bridge in the pics is just my Squier classic vibe. I sanded the corners a little to round them out, and I buffed it a little with steel wool cause I like a matte finish.

    I think he means who made that bridge as it is obviously not a "Fender" made bridge.

    Shouldn’t posts like this go in the vendor forum? I think this is the 3rd recent thread you’ve started about your saddles.

    Yeah you’re probably right seeing as this thread didn’t have any real discussion element to it.

    Looks good.

    Yeah, I think this steel can stand exist alone, without any plating if need be. Rust takes IMO quite a while to be an issue.

    I'm kinda glad to hear you didn't make a bridge plate out of billet aluminum. I made one, and I really didn't like the "foofy" sound of this material. As a matter of fact I've lost my palate for aluminum parts for a while. I installed too many of them and overdosed or something.

    Although, I do like the aluminum Ferrule Block on my ASAT Classic. Vince Stadler of the suburbs of Rochester made one for me in aluminum and one in brass (heavy!). Very cool.
