Does anyone know were I can get a left handed archtop wooden bridge in the uk

I have tried a standard one but i have to rotate the bridge on one side so much I cannot intonate it properly.

I could put a tune-o-matic on but that changes the tone of the guitar to much for me.

Thanks

Barry

Can't say if they will have the one you are after but it may be worth sending an email to these places asking if they stock what you are looking for

Maybe it's worth you also posting in the ask a guitar tech section of the forum for some more advice on how to hunt down the part you are looking for, good luck with finding it.

No there are floating bridges that are interchangable but they are cheaply made.

I ended up getting a ABM roller bridge works great but very expensive .

It sounds like you're having trouble finding a left-handed archtop wooden bridge in the UK. It can be frustrating when standard bridges require adjustments that affect intonation. While using a tune-o-matic bridge may alter the tone too much for your liking, it could be worth exploring other options to find a suitable solution. Good luck in your search, Barry!
