    I've just got to say, this is my favourite bridge ever.

    I wonder if it's compatible with other guitars.

    PRS. It's the plate style bridge on the Holcomb model. I don't know what other models it's on, if any.

    (wanders off; returns)

    Looks like the Vela and maybe one of the baritones, don't know what others. I only have it on my Holcomb.

    Really beautiful item. I'm going to look at the Mann page and see if he has it or a similar one. Might fit on something I have. Is that a string thru body type or do you string it through the back of the bridge?

    Thru body. It's basically a hardtail version of the PRS trem bridge.

    The one on my SE Holcomb is great feeling on my right hand as I mute.

    I do not make the bridge used on the SE Holcomb guitar, but it looks a lot like one that I designed and gave to Paul Smith many years ago ;-)

    The hardtail bridges I currently produce are geared towards Fender spaced guitars. You can find them here

    I recall an interview where Mark said its a mix of a PRS trem style, and a Hipshot. It would be cool to see CU24's be able to come with this bridge, id love one for drop tuning since i missed the bus on the Holcomb core.

    Sweet. Sent you a private message, since it's about a non-PRS guitar. I might have to do the Hipshot, though.
