    Does anyone make a custom wooden bridge to compensate for my plain g-string for 1956 Gibson ES-175. I am using 10-48 flat wounds (not a jazz player).

    Matt Cushman made a custom bridge for me several years ago for my L5P. He did an outstanding job. Haven't seen any recent posts from him, but you might check him out on his website. The thread about the bridge was titled:

    same intonation problem with my ES-175 and the Jazz BeBop strings in 12-50, with that unwound third.

    stock wood bridge is two parts, with the base and the upper, isn't it ?

    I'll get the local archtop expert to make me a new upper, 'til then, I've got that G-string tuned some cents low to compensate.


    okay "for now".
