Stupid warmoth can't make the neck I want in 7.25 radius. But my bridge is 7.25 radius and I can't change that. How would a 7.25 bridge we on a 9.0 or 9.5 neck? Could I also grind the saddles or shim them? Also... It will be a 12 string.

I have that set up on my Shadowmaster. Your E's are elevated moreso than the rest of the strings. Not a big deal.

Just put a washer underneath each E saddle... job done. Very Happy

I did that on my low E as I cut a deeper groove into it to prevent slippage... so heightened it for that reason.



I later did on the higher E just to raise it slightly to prevent chocking on bends.

I'll be using the 9.0/9.5 neck with one of these bridges though. I'm just tring to figure out if it would be worth the $100 -$200 more to have matching radius's on a 12 string.

Talk to john at staytrem, he does custom work by request sometimes and might be able to adapt some 9.5 saddles from his bridges

With that awesomeness, someone could take a toronado bridge and get xii saddles like yours made for it and have a really decent looking xii copy. Just need to drill holes in the back of the bridge too.

I'm surprised ma$tery hasn't made one yet for $500

"The saddles are much different to the ones I currently produce and therefore would need special tooling. I am very sorry but it would not be practical for me to make one or even a few sets.

Regards
John"

Damn.

Maybeee if we made a post to see how many people would buy an xii bridge, it would show enough interest and he would make them. I mean who hasn't wanted an xii bridge?

I don'tknow if this will help you any, but on my Squier I put a regular Mustang bridge but instead of the low E saddle I used an A or B saddle from another set. No problem with the high E and it plays fine like this.

That is a good idea! Just won't work with an xii bridge.

It might if you can get hold of two more saddles. Not 100% sure, but it might.
