    I may be getting a Corvette 6 without hardware and electronics. Buying the bridge and tuners new from Warwick is going to be very pricey (they quoted me 150 for bridge and 150 for tuners). Are there any viable replacements that would look the same? I really love the Warwick bridge, but 150 seems a little pricey.

    The tuners are pretty much standard Gotoh compact set. You can 6 of them for something like $60-65 at Stewart MacDonald depending on the finish.

    StewMac also used to sell the Warwick bridges and tailpieces, but it looks like they don't anymore. Neither Allparts nor Luthier's Mechantile (LMII) have the Warwick bridges, either, so I'm not sure where you might get those.
