At my house today arrived a very nice condition 1992 Custom 24. As I unscrewed everything to check for originality (no expert though) I noticed that the bridge does indeed to be one of the original MIL-COM one-piece models. The bridge on my 1993 Standard 24 definitely has the three bolts; this looks to be one piece and has the "MIL-COM INC FRANKLIN NH" stamp.

Were these standard on later models? I thought they were only on the first couple of years...so maybe someone replaced this one? Thoughts?

MY 93 CE24 came stock with a Mil-Com bridge.

Hmmm...so wondering now why your CE and my Standard from the same year have different bridges...guess someone could've swapped out the bridge on my Standard before I knew her.

More than likely this was the transition period from the one piece bridges to the two piece bridges. From what I recall of PRSs' history, this makes sense.

Perhaps I got lucky.

My '92 also has a one piece bridge.

You probably have a transisition model. That was right around the time that PRS started phasing out my original 1 pc Mil-Com bridges and using another source (Excel Machine) to produce.
