This is a reproduction of the 1960’s style Gibson Thunderbird Bass bridge and tailpiece with a couple of improvements.   First, the bridge body, saddles, tailpiece and studs are machined from brass.   Second, the bridge is wider (from nut to tailpiece) for an increased saddle travel.  Limited intonation adjustment was an issue with many 1960’s Thunderbird basses.
