26 Windsordave 2 months ago I haven't really thought that far ahead, Dave. I did notice the Melita bridge on that particular model, and I've also noticed (here on the GDP), that a lot of people don't seem to like them.What is the rub, with the Melita bridge, that makes people dislike them, anybody? Knavel nicely covered the issue with the Melita bridge that bugs me the most, the high adjustment screws that make fingerstyle very uncomfortable if not impossible. The lower screws should help that issue to be sure, but I also don't like the aesthetics of that bridge. Visually, to me, it just looks extremely 'busy' in accomplishing what should be it's goal - separate the strings and provide intonation. It's the opposite end of the spectrum from a Serpentune, which is the ultimate in simplicity. The few vintage versions I've played don't seem to help the tone or resonance unless I had the volume cranked more than I thought necessary. Tim can also offer suggestions on what bridge material to choose to help getting the tone you're after which is a nice bonus.
