  2. ummm perhaps by a traben chaos?

    do you mean the top of the bridge? cuz there is a big metal plate in the body, so it still gives it that *Big Bridge Big Tone* its just divided in sections cuz not everyone is a fan of the huge bridges being on the top in flame patterns.

    so im guessing you just mean the top part of it.

    soooo i have no idea where you can get a bridge like that, maybe sum1 else can help you.

    Greg Curbow used to do this with standard bridges, only it was a brass block, tapped for the bolts that hold the bridge down. It also helped offset neck dive.

    hmmm i have a metals shop at the school i can't use it myself, because i don't take metals (tried and failed). but one of the teachers that happens to also teach woods (don't have him unfortunately) is great with metals. i think i will see if he cant help me make a simple internal bridge mass brick to try. i have a fretless i am doing with scraps that is more of a test, i can try it on. any tips? i know i have the neccisary tools.
