    Anybody know anything about the pretuners and tuning bridge that Manne claims to have invented?

    It looks intriguing enough in the picture

    But how does it work??? There is no obvious stretching to the strings here!
    :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:
     
  2. Just a stretch here, but it appears the strings get fed into or thru those brass-colored inserts, and the thumbscrews prolly thread downwards for tuning range, pushing the strings down.... I wonder what the range is, but we are talkin fine-tuners...

    It's a neat lookin bridge for sure.

    Can't see any interest in this system

  4. JP, can you still find those tuners? I had seen those once, and thought they were pretty cool. Are they Steinbergers?

    Just curious...
