Strat bridgeplate and saddle questions


Recommended Posts

Any of you know how these items are made?


The bridgeplate: is it thick sheetmetal which is bent and drilled - or is it cast?


The current saddles: are they milled from bar stock, or are they cast?

Looks to me like the baseplates on both the vintage and American Standard units are bent and drilled (although the baseplate on the modern unit is thicker).


The vintage saddles were definitely stamped. The new saddles appear to be milled.
