    Something close (not really) WAS used to mod it!

    One more "artistic" photo...

    That looks like a wraparound bridge to me. I took a similar “artistic” shot of my SE245.

    Ok, so it's a Paul's guitar one piece bridge with brass inserts!

    Oh so close, but none of those things are correct.

    :D


    EDIT: Oops. One part it's correct, but either end wrecks it.

    Private stock fancy trem?

    Private stock fancy trem with brass inserts (somewhere)?

    Tungsten trem?

    PRS Tele bridge?

    A solid silver trem, forged by the elves of Rivendell?

    This can truly be the only actual answer.

    Is the blurry adjustable wraparound bridge what is coming off, or what’s going on?

    I still haven't had time to swap, but I did grab a couple non-Bodia/Sergio photos (Yeah, I know, Sergio. Your photography skills have completely evolved! It's not fair to lump you in with this lot, but I don't know Bodia well enough to pick on him without you!).

    Compared to the SE original:

    All I can say is something I've said so often here and elsewhere (my wife is sick of hearing about it): This place is awesome. I can't believe a group of strangers (very strange in some cases) could be so generous, giving, hilarious, and willing to help. Hans is a rare human, in his ability to openly give, with no expectation to receive. Thank you very much, my friend!

    I love this place.

    More pics to come, when I can replace the bridge and restring.

    Very kind of you guys to say but the accolades go to Paul Smith, not me. He refused to let me pay for some PG bridges I requested a few years ago. I am just trying to pay it forward within our community.

    Can't wait to see the finished product, Eric.

    Can you back off this same area? I am curious to see it in a recognizable form.
