Custom bridge for an underset neck :: 1961 Guild M-65 3/4 CW [4.7 lbs]
A long time ago, someone sat on this guitar at a party and broke the neck joint. The owner decided to repair it himself, but under-set the neck slightly. The bridge I am replacing here is a tuneomatic that was too tall to get the strings down enough for decent action. A new low profile rosewood bridge was fabricated to compenste for the low neck angle. I ended up inlaying a carbon fiber beam though most of the bottom of the new bridge for rigidity. The single P90 on this guy is nasty (i.e. awesome). And yes, another unfortunate casualty of the hardware store refinisher.
