    13s on a SE Stoptail, what are my bridge options?

    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!
