Isn't That What Friends Are For?
I'm rockin' a three-saddle Wilkinson bridge these days. And I'm dreaming of the next cool thing to add to my guitar. My thought was "Piezo bridge! I'll make it so I can play acoustic stuff on my electric!"
I thought of that many years ago, true. That is still the thought. I'm not 100% sure that it'll be this Tele, but a Tele of mine at some point will have a piezo bridge.
And I found the picture above on the Trussart site. That, if you look closely is a 3-saddle Graphtech Ghost setup.
Now, go to Graph Tech. Find the Ghost page. You will find no three-saddle piezo bridges.
So I wrote Graph Tech, and Colin Darling wrote me back. Evidently, they could never get it to work with MIDI (the other thing you can do with piezo bridges), so they dropped it.
Can't say I'm happy about that.
What I can say is that received the response an hour and a half after I sent the request, and I figured that if I got word back within this month, I'd be doing good.
So, one day I will have a Telecaster with a piezo bridge. It won't be three-saddle, but it most likely will be Graph Tech.
