    I need a chrome (nickel) and a black. Rick has gone completely MIA. I've tried calling him at least 50 times in the past 3 months. If you have one, I would like to purchase it from you.

    Are you sure that you want a trem that there will be no support or parts for.

    Good point, but realistically, how many times is someone going to need parts for their trem?

    It's what the customer ordered. The guitars are built.

    The Skyway is specifically designed to outlast the owner. It's a shame they're not readily available, but the relentless, ignorant negativity from Eagle1 certainly doesn't help anyone.

    I have direct experience with one, you don't.

    And practically no one has because the support is non existent.
    Avoid it like the plague because even if you get one and need a part (no hope) the rout is like nothing else so then what?

    I've had my Suhr with Skyway since 2007. Don't worry about parts, nothing goes wrong with this bridge, it's built to last forever. I only wish I could buy more, I have a few projects I want to build but haven't been able to contact Rick. If anyone knows how to reach him please let me know.

    I sure hope so! If I can't get any more I may have to try another option, I hope it doesn't come to that as no other "tremolo" bridge I've tried checks off all the boxes in my needs list as Skyway.
