    Here we have a Hipshot chrome 4-string Vintage bridge that has been modified to fit the infamous bridge-rout found a MiJ Fender Aerodyne (P or J). A MUCH sturdier solution to the flimsy stock bridge IMO. And, if you don't own an Aerodyne, at the end of the day, it's still a Hipshot Vintage bridge with slightly larger radius corners. :) Mounting screws included.

    Pics below show fit on the Aerodyne. As you can see, the Hipshot is a tad shallow neck to bridge but the overhang does a good job of camouflaging this. Hipshot has since fashioned me a custom bridge with exact Aerodyne specs so I no longer need this one.

    I imagine there's a bit of exposed brass on the corners, right? Is it just the front two corners? It looks like you did a nice job on the radius. I love these bridges - the quick release makes string changes SO much easier. I think I may need this for one of mine that lacks that nicety. I'll pm in a bit.
