^pexc^ster #2 is a dandy instrument. Just look at it. You know it’s true.

I can’t recall seeing D ever playing one in concert, but AM (of the DZ band) sure did. It sounded great too.

Nice!

3 different hardware manufacturer’s parts, in a custom configuration.

I used my machinist scale first, to verify the string spacings and measurements are uniform, and then assembled the bits for a visual inspection.

Everything looks great. I might need about .25 “ more length in the intonation screws, but won’t know for sure for maybe another 6 months or so, after the other parts are ready.

Those saddles are extended to the end of the screws, due both to the Schroeder hard tail bridge’s thick plating, and Callaham’s screws being only 1” long.
