What do I really have here in this bridge?

What do I really have here in this bridge?

Postby Jon S. » Sun Dec 04, 2011 2:18 pm

I copped this bridge a couple of years back off of eBay. The seller advertised it as an Alembic prototype. I had no idea at the time if that was true but I put in a low bid and to my surprise won the auction so FBOW it's mine. I'm wondering if I should give it a shot on an existing or possible new axe?

P.S. I don't know why the pics are being cut off to the right. These are the first ones I'm linking to here from my new Photobucket account but I'm not experiencing the same issue at other sites. Oh well, the full pics are visible here: http://www.tdpri.com/forum/3754353-post195.html

If you make your window wider, the pics won't be cut off.

Alembic prototype seems very plausible to me. I'd ask the folks at the Alembic forum.

If there's a way to make my window wider I don't know what it is nor why the problem's occurring to me here for the first time now and not anywhere else but thanks for the suggestion.

I have the same problem, I've had it all along. I think the screen resolution is set too low. but not too sure.

Fascinating how this thread is becoming more about computer settings than bridges. Oh well, it will go where it will go. In that spirit, I've moved over to my Mac now and I'm seeing the full pics so Rusty must be right. Now if only I could figure out [i]why[i/]!

I have two monitors at work, and I even have to stretch the window all the way over onto part of my 2nd monitor to see the full pics.

It also might be a Starr's Guitars bridge. They had a lot of crossover with Alembic and did really good work.

Nice score!
