    Decent Bridges from Ali express

    If you search for "Guitarfamily" on Aliexpress these guys supply decent bridges at a decent price. and Also korean made locking tuners are also good.

    No real savings on the GOTOH Bridges, but the Korean made bridges, (similar quality to Wilkinson) I have found are quality and they have shipped to me relatively quickly for an Aliexpress seller. They have not yet muffed an order from me.

    I have used, tele type bridges , tune-omatic with stop tail and bigblock tremolos are good as well.

    The bridges you mention look good, may be worth a look in a couple of projects time.

    They weren’t failures, I just found a bunch of ways of how not to do it. Apologies to Thomas Edison.

    I quite like the look of 12 and 13, they look to be Piezo powered travel type guitars
