    The Moses bridge is graphite. I have one here that I auditioned on my Juzek; it's still virgin as I didn't cut the legs but used other ones on the adjusters I already had. I'm a Moses dealer.

    I noted some increased sustain but also a slightly brighter and more distinct sound. It is no longer on my Juzek and is available for sale if you are interested, contact me off-board. My bass didn't need the contributions it made, and I'm looking forward to trying that new adjustable bridge on the Juzek.

    You won't be disappointed. Like you, I'm also a lumberjack, and I'm OK. But don't think that the "ouch" part is just a joke...at least not at first. :)
     
  4. Now I'm curious, guys... whats the scoop on these composite bridges? How do they work for arco playing? Cost?
