    These people are new to me. They've had an occasional mention here. I've no hands on experience, but their stuff looks good, if expensive. Based in Greece I think.

    Don't look like they're worth the money being asked.

    A bit of necro posting here but... whatever...

    I got them to adapt their offset bridge to my Classic Player Jaguar which has a tune-o-matic type bridge (the Adjustomatic).

    I must say that although it's a lot of money you get what you pay for. The bridge isn't made out of bent sheet metal but milled out of a solid piece of steel so it is extremely stable. For me that's a nice thing on a Jaguar or Jazzmaster although purists will probably disagree. I have a Mastery which I love in my Jazzmaster and I must say that although the Halon is very different it is a very, very nice upgrade. Which one prefers is a matter of taste I guess. For the Jaguar which is more clunky sounding than the JM I feel that the extra weight really makes a positive difference giving more solidity and sustain.

    For Telecasters some people prefer a thin sheet metal bridge but if you want a high quality bridge which is a bit heavier but still has the vintage style footprint they make a very nice product.
