Hi Hamer guys,

I am going to give this project a second try... I finally have some open time to squeeze these into my cnc production!
I have enough stock on had to make 20 hardtail bridge assemblies. Is that enough to cover existing demand?
I have a new local source for plating (Mass), as well Advanced Plating (Nashville, TN - the plant that burnt down to the ground)

These should be completed in January 2020.
I will put up a link to purchase them in mid - December

Joe G. - Thanks for the CAD files!

Maybe. But it would be nice if you limit the orders to 1 or 2 each until everyone that wants one is happy.

Why not just make more?.. Surplus can easily be sold on eBay or Reverb

Going overboard means a lot of money tied up in the hopes that someone is going to buy these bridges.  There will be a market, but it is limited.  The participants here will be snapping up bridges right away.

Is there a price range in mind?

Can I order one in black? 


That would be a separate plating charge and based on what I know about plating, about a 250 dollar lot charge.  I have also never seen black nickel, although I know it is done.  I think it may be two processes, so more expensive than normal plating.

I want something to match a set of black tuners.  Chrome is fine, though.  Just getting a bridge is fine.

I'm interested in one. It's never to early to start planning for my third Shishkov.

I’m in! Depending on the price, I’d get one or two.

The guys that make Texas Toast Guitars are looking for a supplier of "Sustain Block" type bridges. Matt is a huge Hamer USA guitar fan!!

I see the black nickel option.  Is it possible to get a black anodized finish-- "none more black"?

Very exciting.  Years ago I installed a MM trem on a Daytona.  I was very pleased with the performance and looks.  I have a new build coming and this would be a very nice addition to the project.
