    that bridge is one of the rare, early prototypes and the tuner threads are more like Kahlers. I'm in the process of having 4 replacements custom cut but that's what was on it when I scored it so they'll have to be there for a bit longer.

    the prototype bridge was on Frankie during the beak neck and hockeystick eras so it really needs to be replaced altogether with a standard production floyd but until I build another 5150 or buy a beak neck, its gonna stay on there despite the inaccuracy.

    Nice Work! The thread pitch is different than the current Brass fine tuners?
