Interesting. How did you deal with the thimbles? I'd like to avoid doweling and redrilling if possible...
Göldo makes a conversion bushing.

I have not tried it, but if confronted with your problem I would try this with an ABM roller bridge.
Yes! Thanks! Was hoping this existed!
Without music, life would be a mistake.

On a whim I emailed John from Staytrem and asked if he’ll make a 12” bridge.

The answer was yes, so I just ordered a 12” radius Staytrem for £90 + £10 shipping to the US (Arizona).

I’m a little giddy because running a 9.5” bridge on my 10” radius neck is workable, but I prefer running flatter bridge setups, so a 12” bridge on a 10” neck ought to be super groovy.

If not there will be a 12” Staytrem for sale :)

Out of curiosity I’m also going to contact Halon to see how much I can get a set of their individual adjustable saddles for. In pictures they look to be very high quality.

Hmm. I emailed him the same thing around the time I made this thread and he said he couldn’t do it.

Strange! I don’t know what to say... I hope that what I receive is indeed a 12” bridge LOL ! Maybe I got a repeat customer concession? Maybe he only makes batches of those at certain times? You should clarify with him, maybe he’s open to take orders for 12’s now.
