    Um, that whole mess is on an ALCOA aluminum bass, so, IMHO, all bets are off in terms of acoustics, resonance, feedback, etc...

  7. Question: Is the CNC Deuce bridge (2) available again?

    Here's the tailpiece that Deuce made for my Alcoa while it was in the shop (before I owned it)... I've never seen one on another bass. With the Deuce 1 bridge and the trap-door, it all looks sort of steampunk-ish.

    Deuce Tailpiece. tailpiece bridge.

    I keep imagining that the tailpiece is really some obscure dune-buggy part that was laying around the shop. Just imagine all you could hang off of that thing!

    Hi Don,

    When I finally get my ALCOA polished I'm putting this on it (aluminum, formerly painted black, and I think very steampunk now that it's reduced to the metal):
