    resurrecting this thread for the purpose of saying, I have contacted Hipshots EU distributor about buying their headless bridge in Chrome.
    Will look nicer, and the biggest plus is tweaking options. The standard bridge is OK but its string height adjustment is a joke. The action is just constantly too high even on "lowest".
    The mounting screw holes will be different obviously, but Im hoping I can get around that issue. Plus tuning it is going to be way way easier as will restrings in general.
    That and you cant beat regular saddles.

    Anyway, further updates when I hear back about ordering.

    I mean its really REALLY light and sounds super snappy/twangy (although that could be due to the bad stock pickups)
    so im unsure on the body wood tbh.

    Would be the lightest mahogany Ive ever had if so.
