Here is one of my custom rod piezo bridges. I recently bought some ironwood burl and thought i`d give it a try on one of my custom bridges. The hardest part of this project was joining up the bone to give a good look. The saddle is part bone and ironwood too, with the treble string resting on the bone part. There`s a rod piezo under the saddle for the pickup. 2 1/2” long x 3/8” high. I also added some more of my custom bridges that i`ve made. One of my favorites is the bookmatch end grain osage orange with peruvian walnut ends and black buffalo horn saddle.
