We have a break angle problem………….a big problem Houston!
As you can see in order to keep the strings seated on the bridge, I need to fix the break angle somehow.
The bridge is currently so high the guitar is unplayable above the 5th fret and even then strings can pop off the bridge.
The hope is that the https://townerusa.com DTBii will provide the solution when it arrives. (Its a long trip for the US to OZ).
Anyway, the DTBii is specifically for Trapeze style tailpieces and mounts directly off the bridge studs, rather than the the the Tailpiece studs of a typical Stop Tail style instrument. I’ll ultimately be stocking these when production is ramped up. If you want one let me know.
