DuoSonic/MM bridge assemblies-updated potential brodeal

I’m sure someone has done or at least attempted this, but Tele style saddles in a 60’s DS or MM bridge/tailpiece. Do it work?

I just ordered some, I'll let you know how it goes. This could very well be one of those things that everyone knows but me.

Why I'm asking is that I am meeting with a local fabrication place about doing a run of 30-50 old school tail pieces since they sell for $3,000 each on ebay now.

Planning on selling them at cost to my shortscale homies.

matt is looking to change the saddles/bridge on his CV duo. it's currently got the old school three saddle setup which isn't giving him enough control over each string. does anyone know if there's a conversion kit for a strat-style (hard tail) bridge or if there's another solution to get control over six strings individually?

Watch all the videos I made for the Alstang build. It will answer all your questions

I build a bridge with toronado plate plus telecaster saddles

I haven't heard back from the fabrication place yet but I'm wondering if doing some of them that would work with the vintage style, 6 saddle tele bridge pieces would be worth it.

The cork sniffers over at tdpri didn't have a very high opinion of them.

Thoughts?

If it's top loader won't work. You need to drill 3 new holes for the saddle posts and the strings go in the old saddle screw holes.

I can take close up photos of the Padmé bridge if you want.

I don't get home until 10 tho. Maybe Al can photo the Alstang bridge. It's the same shit

if you do decide to go this route, let me know how you find the results. i don't think matt likes the smell of corks.
