I can't get any audio on this clip..never mind, my power supply for my audio came unplugged...
Have to disagree - try it yourself and you’ll notice the difference. Videos don’t do it justice but as the player you’ll hear the difference.I get that well made guitar parts are a must if you want to get the best sound and performance from your instrument. But honestly I don't get the extreme cork sniffing, and dubious before/after comparison demos.......subtle differences in sound that would barely be audible to your family's pet dog.
Minor adjustments to my guitar's tone controls can produce nearly identical changes in tone as demonstrated in the Four Uncle ABR-1 comparison videos. And it doesn't cost me a dime!
How do you know it is Zamak 5? If it is, it is going to be interesting. I own just about every reproduction and vintage bridge available from (DMC(My Favorite), Faber, Montreux, Pigtail (Respectfully), Kluson, Solo, 1960’s, and 1950’s). I want to see what I could do versus four people.For Mr. Legit ^^^
It stands for Dead Mint Club. They made the first accurate reproduction ABR-1. To my understanding, they were also die casted. If they still made them. I’d opt for that over just about any reproduction so far, but they are rare and expensive now.Mr. Legit, I sent you the link so you could check it out in case you were not aware of it.
What is a DMC?
Not the same thing my friend..Save your $$$. Just throw some of these on your existing Historic ABR and call it a day…
· 1950’s, 1960’s wire and no-wire ABR bridges which have the foundry mark or patent number. · Gotoh or import ABR lookalike bridge. Try looking for the ejector pin marks (see picture) with a flashlight before taking the bridge off the guitar.www.ebay.com
