Been busy making custom bridges and slides for the last few months. Here are just a few that I did. Plus some real nice carved bone work ones….The ” snapper turtle ” is my favorite so far. I carved out a chamber underneath it and stuck a piezo disc pickup in there. The ” gator ” was a tough one.

These are quite impressive! Each one has a unique character and beauty from the wood.

I love those! Too bad I can’t use one of those on acoustic fiddle. I would love to jam with one of those.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

These look awesome!!! Have you made any nuts with the bone? Or, are you concentrating on bridges and slides?

These look really unique. Do they modify the sound at all? It would be intriguing if there was a tone connected to tge shape as well as the visual uniqueness.
