I found the "Tiger" style harmonica tune-o-matic bridge here: http://www.guitarpartsresource.com/gbri ... gibson.htm (thanks Martin!)

only problem is, it came with steel saddles...

Any idea where I can get brass saddles for this bridge?

Noticed that Kluson has come out with replacement harmonica bridge milled from a steel billet. Should be tone improver over a cast bridge.
