Staytrem Bridges have been improved!

Post by Bradley-Jazz » Tue Jan 12, 2021 2:43 am

Hi All

I spotted the other day that Staytrem now offers a 52mm Bass VI bridge - I'm not sure how long these have been available. I've had problems pushing the low E off the edge of the fingerboard on my CV VI, so I ordered one. It was listed as pre-order, but was dispatched the next day - excellent service!

Anyway, when it arrived, I noticed that there were a couple of upgrades over the original I had -

Original:

New one:

Apart from the 52mm spacing option, the intonation screws now run all the way across the bridge plate and sit in holes in the other side (and the ends of the screws are nicely polished). Also, the nylon lock washers on these screws are now replaced with metal spring clips.

Looking at the photos on the Staytrem site, it looks like the guitar bridges might have the spring clips, and the extended screws on just the E strings - has anyone got one to confirm?

I've never had particular problems with the original design, but the new one holds the saddles even more securely and it's nice to see someone continuing to develop an already excellent product.
Stop me if you think you've heard this one before....

The metal clips are an especially nice touch. Staytrem seems to be hitting sixes at the moment.

Can't argue with that.

This will make it even sadder when they stop selling internationally for the second time ;)

Not to sound like a hoarder or attempted profiteer but I'm going to bank a Bass VI bridge and a 9.5 guitar just in case. I have dreams of building a Jagblaster that won't happen for at least a year...

I've been wanting a Staytrem for a long time, and I finally ordered one (9.5" radius) for my CV JM. So many good things happening with that guitar.

I didn't know any better, but the Staytrem I bought last Oct/Nov has the screws all the way through, but only on the E strings. I can't add any photos since I don't use a Photobucket type account, but looks the same as yours.
