Roller Bridge for Newport w/Bigsby

Question

Does anyone know if there is a direct replacement TOM bridge with roller saddles for a Hamer Newport with a Bigsby? Meaning, a bridge that will fit on the same bridge posts.

Thanks!

Whatever TOM Bridge Hamer was using 10 years ago.

It's this guitar. Thanks

Curious, why are you doing the conversion? Tuning issues? Bridge rockin’ too much?

My Newport holds tune wonderfully and I use that whammy like it’s Ike Turner on a 50s Strat. And I am digging the filter idea that yours inspired!

I bought another Newport last month that has a Schaller roller bridge on it and I like the way the Bigsby works much better than on the Tron Newport. But I haven't been able to find any info about whether you have to pull the threaded inserts to use the posts that come with the Schaller bridge.

Here's the Newport that I just purchased (without the roller bridge).

And here's the link to the Schaller bridge that's now on it:

It looks like it comes with two sets of posts, I just don't want to have to pull the threaded inserts out of the top of the Tron Newport.
