A_M Posted May 8, 2004 Report Share Posted May 8, 2004 OK, I've been planning on making my own guitar (7-string les paul-esque electric) for quite some time and now I've finally ordered the wood for this project. I want to start ordering hardware and other parts in the relatively near future but am not sure what bridge to get and where to get it from, and have some other questions related to this too. I want to use a seven string tune-o-matic style bridge for this. Has anyone here used such bridges for your guitars, and if so; which one, where did you get it from, and what did you think of it? I haven't seen many sources for such bridges online.I've seen Allparts has one (which Universaljems sells) but judging from the tiny photo of it at universaljems.com (the only photo I've seen of it) it looks a bit different from the usual tune-o-matics I've seen.Then there's this one that guitarpartsdepot.com sells. Anyone bought stuff from that website?Finally I'm pretty sure TonePros builds 7-string tune-o-matics but I don't know if one can by them anywhere. Anyone know?I guess the string spacing on TOMs is slightly narrower than on most other 7-string bridges too, yet the 7-string Dimarzio pickups are F-spaced only - will they work fine with a tune-o-matic style bridge anyway? Finally, if I were to want to have piezo pickups, does anyone know if and where one can get piezo loaded saddles for 7-string TOM bridges? I haven't decided on this, just pondering the possibility... / Andreas Mattsson Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
