Had a request from a fellow builder to make him a few parts for his cigar box guitar that he was making. So i made him a 3 piece set out of Rosewood which included a 4 string tailpiece, carved jackplate and a rod piezo bridge with bone ends. Then i thought might as well make up a few more sets for future customers. One was out of Purpleheart and one out of Paduak, the paduak one i made a bone bridge with paduak stripes. Always wanted to try a bone base bridge and it came out awesome. Then i made a deluxe set out of Ironwood Burl and bone which includes a rod piezo bridge, one of my half n half bone slides, 3 string tailpiece, jackplate, 2 picks and 2 guitar nuts all in a nice presention cigar box.
