    All items on offer are brand new, unused, and made by me. Please have a search on the forum for “dBridge” if you haven’t heard of me before :)

    dBridges - all the bridges below are 12” radius, 2" E-E string spacing, 2.9” post spacing, 4mm post holes, compensated to suit unwound G string sets up to 11s. This is by far the most popular model I sell (and I personally have this spec fitted to my own 5422, 6118, 2420 and 6122).

    Finally, a few one-off Corian bridges, for those who want something a little different!

    Bone white Corian - SOLD

    Orange fleck Corian - 1 available - UK £25.

    I also have some bridge bases made from finest quality striped Macassar Ebony. This is my own custom design, more curvy than the standard rectangular Gretsch base. Radiused on the bottom face to suit most Gretsch hollowbodies (including Proline models with pinned bridges).

    Ebony base with nickel or gold thumbwheels - 7 available - UK £28 (normally £40)

    PA210450.JPG

    Polished string mutes (see picture at top) - 2 aluminium, 9 brass available - UK £18 (normally £25)

    Just to clarify, these dBridges are a drop-in upgrade for most modern Gretsch hollow body guitars with a wooden bridge base and 2.9" post spacing. There's no need to buy the ebony base listed above.

    However, please measure your existing bridge base to make sure the dBridge will fit. I have read worrying reports of some recent 5420 Korean models having a narrow 73mm post spacing, rather than the usual 2.9" (73.66mm).

    So, these won't work on jets with the body mounted studs?

    Not this batch, no. The studs require a bridge with larger 1/4" (6.35mm) holes.

    Will you be fabricating more of those, @Dave-B, or has dBridge shuttered operations?

    I have a brass dBridge and ebony base on my White Falcon.
    I have nothing but great things to say about it! The intonation is great, and the tone is awesome. Much better than the stock space control bridge as far as I’m concerned.

    Also, it looks like it belongs there!

    Hi Dave, I got one of your mutes some time ago and very pleased with it. I would be interested in one of the polished aluminium bridges and a base for my 5420T. I tried to send a PM but not sure if it has gone through. I'm UK based could you try a PM to me please. All the best.

    Finally gonna swap out the stock bridge on my 5420 :D it's starting to lose it's finish and I can see the copper shining through. There is a lot of muting in rockabilly.

    I have not shuttered operations, but I am reworking my product line.

    I will no longer be making bespoke bridges with custom saddle intonations. Seemed like a good idea, but didn't pan out for various reasons.

    Instead, I plan to offer a simplified line of standard bridges (including one suitable for Jets with stud fixings).

    I would have ordered 2 more bridges and a base but I'm skint!

    If the spacing is correct maybe use bridge adaptor posts? They're sold by Rockinger Germany, Faber, ABM, Guitar Fetish if in the US and others.

    Will that simplified line include a bridge intonated for a wound 3rd?
