Actually I prefer to fit bridges so there is very little material on the feet and flat all the way across the bottom. Flat meaning that there is no arch or opening under the center of the bridge base. It is a very time consuming job taking me about two hours, but the pay off is worth it. The reason Gibson originally went away from the one piece full contact bridge to the adjustable, was among other things, a time saver. I think the better mouse trap equivalent is the Brekke bridge. But, like the Monteleone, it's not for everyone or every instrument. However, on instruments from the Pacific rim and others under $1500, it's perfect.
