OK Bridge, but more variety would be appreciated

I had a tough time finding tenor banjo bridges, and StewMac came through with this model. Good bridge for the price, and worked in the application that I needed it for. I do wish there were a few more choices for 4-string bridges, though: adding a 1/2" model, and also compensated 1/2" and 5/8" choices would be very welcome. This 5/8" worked for me because I was resetting the action anyway, but if I had wanted to keep things the same it would have required some work to get it to replace the 1/2" that I took off.

Just the job

I buy these a dozen at a time. Good quality wood for a fair price, they're just the job for vintage tenor restoration.

Banjo bridge

I had to sand this bridge a little because of the vintage banjo I used it on, plus I put a little stain to match the banjos finish. The end result was that my customer was happy with the results. Once again Stewmac assisted me with maintaining customer satisfaction.

Not the ideal height for my banjo, but it worked out fine!

I took a chance on this bridge to replace an old one on a tenor banjo, even though the old one was 1/2" and not 5/8". When I put it in place, sure enough, it was too high. So I thinned down the top ebony, filed in some new string grooves, took a little off the bottom of the bridge, and it worked great. I wish Stewmac had 1/2" height bridges, but if you can't find one elsewhere, there is enough wood on these bridges to adjust height some by removing wood.
