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.

You blended them together so well, they look as one.

Nice combination, and quite unique. I took a look at your other projects too. You do some really nice carving. Thanks for sharing it. :)
