Bendmaster Sort Of??

Post by TVill25 on Thu Jan 10, 2013 10:56 pm

I got this of ebay for $10. It was sold as a Floyd Rose Patent bridge. I thought I could at least use the saddles.
Here's what I got.

This picture shows them side by side FR on the Right. the plate is not usable the pin spacing is off.


This picture shows the saddle/ saddle screw and the fine tuner. Also the trem arm nut?? All are similar enough to use accept the trem arm nut(different thread pitch)


This shows the string claws. The FR ones don't have a claw but a hole for the string to pass thru. They look usable but the shaft that holds them in is slightly smaller. I think those can be drilled out.


Here the FR claws? are installed on the Bendmaster trem. they look like they will work.


Here are the saddles. close enough to use.


saddles again.

That's bridge is used on Marlin and Encore guitars.

I think the fine tuner (string claws) are a better idea than the Mats. bridge
More of a solid anchour point.

... I've seen one, off a Hohner superstrat. One or people on here have bits from it on their guitars....

The fine tuners are no longer available so if you're dead set on OEM ones then keeping an eye out on the online auction houses is your best bet. Allen head bolts work well in the interim...
The block: well, I've got a Bendmaster FT block here.... which one are you after?

Hi Adam, welcome to the forums.

This is a very old thread and not really related to your current search for parts.
To avoid confusion and keep the topic clear, in future please start a new thread and post in the Wanted Forum. Wink

(Good on Corsair for the offer of help.)
