As long as we're on the topic of suppliers, anybody know where I can find either a bridge and tailpiece from a TVL JM or get Staytrem parts Stateside?

I used the TVL hardware I got from a friend who went the Mastery route on my Jag and love it. I'm about to start a matching Jazzmaster build and would really like the same hardware for it.

Thanks!
The TVL trem (0054466000) is the same as AVRI62/AV65 trem, which also goes by 0054466049 ...

The TVL bridge (7702080000) with brass saddles and Staytrem-/Marr-like anti-sink nylon bushings is unique to the TVL and sometimes crops up on reverb, eg

Similar to the original Marr bridge (~56mm E-E spacing ?).
Ended up getting that trem (for now at least, until the Descendant is available at which point I'll move it to my Squier VI) and a Marr bridge for the JM. MJT is buffing it in the next couple of days and (hopefully! ) I'll have it in time for the 3 day weekend...

B&B necks!

Hey it's more a question than a recommendation: (so mods: feel free to move it anywhere where it fits better!)

European/German offsetters forward!
Have you ever heard of the (German) supplier Hermann's guitars? I was looking for B&B necks (Jaguar necks originally... I vaguely remembered a seller from Australia "SurfJag" or some other combination of words associated with Surf and guitars - but couldn't find any offers of them but instead I found this:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Stratocaster ... Sw~dhcsPNM I think they look good!
It says Canadian maple - but could be another one of those Chinese necks... but they look more Jazzmaster-y than the one I have/Rexter is having at the moment for headstock matching - due to the position of the Truss-rod access. And I payed almost double for mine... :fp:
They have a Pau Ferro fingerboard - but in fact look really good!

Any experiences with these necks or the seller?
If not and desperately in need of a B&B neck for a project? You're welcome! ::)
