Schaller Hannes Bridge
By far the most comfortable bridge on the market.
The perfect combination of sound properties of all bridge constructions on the market.
The sound is characterised by fine high notes and quick responsiveness, with distinct, powerful and even playback.
Contact-friendly material and a comfortably designed, edgeless surface.
Non-wearing due to the lack of metallic coatings.
Both fresh and subdued in appearance, it further emphasises the guitar' premium design.
