    Try www.KGC.com for the bridge block, and let us know what you think after the installation. They make machined brass, and I'm curious to know if there really is a sound difference.

    Personally, I play a plywood arch top in extreme conditions when I'm playing jazz, and either a Mahogany or Korina SE when it's an electric gig. My theory is that if it's not my best guitar, I won't...
