“Got my MannMade 2000NOS bridge installed today. I can’t tell you how happy I am with this bridge, it’s a work of art! Anyway I just wanted to say thank you to you both and I’ve attached a couple of pics of the bridge on my CE24.
Thanks for making such awesome bridge, I admit I was little disappointed that my 2016 PRS CE24 has the Korean made SE bridge. I find the arm length and shape to be odd, uncomfortable and the strings have a tendency to stick in the block.” ~ Heath F.

You asked for it, so I figured out how to make it! MannMade USA recently announced the release of our Intonatable Stoptail bridge. I received a lot of positive feedback on this, however lots of players asked if I could provide pre-slotted saddles. I was a bit hesitant at first, because not all stoptails are mounted perpendicular to the center of the neck. Some of those old Gibson Les Pauls and SG’s had the bridge canted quite a bit! Pre-slotted saddles would not be a good choice for those guitars.
Many PRS guitars are equipped with non-adjustable stoptail bridges, and it seems like a lot of owners would love to have an intonatable solution. Because these bridges are set pretty square to the neck, pre-slotted saddles would be an excellent option.
So we did it! Not only did we slot the saddle, we also made it thicker… for more mass… better tone… more sustain…
The saddles, screws, studs and stud wells are all machined from solid brass billet and left unplated for better tonal transfer. The bridge itself is precision CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminium. It comes in a several finishes.
After installing the prototype on to my 2010 PRS McCarty Dallas Shootout edition, I was amazed how good it sounded!
We want you to join us in our celebration !!! MannMade USA has issued a special 30th anniversary run of the original legendary bridge that debuted on Paul Reed Smith’s (PRS Guitars) original 1985 NAMM show guitars – the Custom 24 and the Standard 24 .
