    Wow, looks great. Is it a direct retrofit with any 3 saddle bridge?

    I've tested it on every 3-saddle bridge plate I could get my hands on - both vintage and American Standard-style (holes in different location), including chopped plates. It works with all of them. Top-load too.
    Thanks for asking!

    Oh yeah, I suspect we'll offer a couple different ones in the future. Had to start with the most common and go from there. :)

    I have a very strong desire to put one of these on my new Harrison tele.

    Ordered one yesterday, can't wait to try it. I'm a massive wraparound fan, so this is right up my alley.

    I hope there are some left after the new year. I want to try one on my Waterslide Telebacker with Fralin Big Singles.
