If not an original Sustain Block bridge, what?

"MY luthier" in TGPese, of course. Maybe in Welsh, too, given the obligatory "y."

But here on the HFC, the possessive modifier is neither implied nor inferred.

Trevor Healy - he built/assembled 'The Last One' Mirage II, and did the neck-work and assembly on my Patrick Nagel Centaura.

My old 78 was 8 0111 and had pickguard plastic as a spacer. 
Around what serial number did they cross from 77-78?

and did they use the plastic vs wood at any particular time period or just grab what they had available...?

From page 50 of 'The Book' - "Of course, 'regular production' for Hamer at this point meant only a total of ninety-six guitars from the June NAMM show through the end of 1977"

 

Plastic shim here under 7 0094's bridge.

Ah, I should’ve consulted my copy. Thanks for the reference.

Thanks John and the MannMade USA Folks, along with Tim, Matt and everyone at the HFC who had a hand in making this run of sustainblocks a reality.

I'm excited to get mine (Friday), but at the same time I know having it in hand will prompt the ordering of more.

Thanks again Joe and John for all the work getting this done.  Man, we'll have to get a something different thing for comparison, since John is manufacturing hen's teeth!
