NEW SUSPENSION BRIDGE

The brand-new Suspension Bridge uses a screwless mount to increase the vibration transfer, driving the top for nearly endless sustain and lively response. In a nod to our past the Suspension Bridge retains our classic brass three-barrel design.

The S-1 switch on this model activates series or parallel wiring options when using both pickups for even more tonal variations. Discreetly placed atop the volume control, it engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.
