Pinless Bridge

My steel string bridges feature a pinless design which allows unparalleled ease in changing strings. The ball ends of the strings slide over steel rods to sit flush below the bridge surface. No plastic pins to pry out, wear out, and break. The pinless bridge was invented by luthier Jeffrey Elliott.

The bridges also feature an extra-wide angled saddle for correct string compensation. I file a little ramp in the saddle for each string which peaks at the exact compensated string length. This creates perfect intonation on all strings, from the nut to the 22nd fret.
