    Hey all,

    I'm starting my first guitar build soon enough and am currently designing/looking for hardware. I've run into a bit of a problem finding the bridge. I am planning on using a non-tremolo type. Does anyone have preferences/good things to say about 7-string bridges they've used in the past or are still using? Is there any preference between a run through body bridge or a...top fed bridge (not sure what they're called)?

    I've been thinking of using this one (Hipshot 7 string fixed .125). Has anyone used this one and have positive or negative things to say about it?

    7 String Fixed .125 Guitar Bridge > Store > Hipshot Products

    Any help is much appreciated. Thanks,

    Chris

    Spend 30 seconds searching the site and you'll see how much love Hipshot bridges get.
