Badbird II replacement for Gibson 3-point bridge

I'm friends with Scott Dasson on Facebook, and he's active on a couple of other forums I frequent (username: godofthunder59).

His Badbird I is a replacement bridge that addresses intonation issues for vintage Thunderbirds.

It has around for quite a while and has been installed by a few familiar players, like Tom Petersson of Cheap Trick, and this guy here:

He's had the Badbird II retrofit for the 3-point bridge in development, and he's just posted photos of the production version installed and ready to go.

The BB-II offers a vintage look, a better match to the fretboard radius, and a stronger anchor point to the body.

No affiliation here, I'm just a fan of the concept and execution and thought I'd share:
