Let's say hypothetically I wanted to string up a SE with 13s (including a wound 3rd string) and tune it B to B. What are my options as far as adjustable bridges?

So far I've come up with the following:
1) PRS adjustable bridge. That would work, yes. But they cost $290. The guitar I'm looking at buying costs $300 used... for the whole guitar.
2) Schroeder?
3) Pigtail?
4) Hipshot Baby Grand?
5) Others?

Or should I wait for the new SE Clint Lowery?

Personally i'd go with the Schroeder and just get them or a tech to adjust the slots to the 10" radius and guage 13 strings if needed.

Not heard a bad thing about the Schroeder bridges yet. I'd get their metric locking studs to go with it.

I agree with this. I have two Schroeder bridges notched to the 10" radius with no complaints.

Tonepros P Style bridge?

Same bridge on at least 3 or 4 other SE artist signatures!
