    I want to build a Jazzmaster Baritone. Daphne blue, rosewood fingerboard, white pearl scratch plate, but a Bigsby rather then a traditional JM trem. Would a Mastery bridge work with a Bigsby?

    The Mastery website suggests you can use a Mastery bridge with a Tele w/ Bigsby, so I don't see why you couldn't do it on a JM-style body.
