    Where'd you get those thumbscrews? Your e strings look a little deep, BTW. The saddle looks interesting.

    Adjusts with a slick wrench, and has a brass under saddle. I have that bridge on both my mandolins, and love them.

    It is a nice bridge, but I see what Dale’s saying, especially on the e strings. Very nice picture, though, and if it sounds great, I wouldn’t sweat it. But, then, I’m a heavy handed no talent hack

    I see what you both are saying there. I had a luthier do some work on it this summer and as far as those particular 'E' strings, they are the most consistent for tone and remaining in tune.

    Thanks for the compliments and comments. I bought a new Canon 5D Mark iii last week and have been playing with my macro lens.
