Great for 6-10 strings and Novax scale(s)
These are awesome for a few reasons. First they have a great body contact footprint and transfer a lot of string energy. Second: They are made by ABM. I hope I don''t need to explain this one! Third: You can make a 7 or 8 string guitar that sounds great, looks great and plays great. Forth: I can stagger these back to make a Novax (Ken Novack, or is it Novak?) style multi scale guitar. Pick your poison making the scale longer for bass or treble. You must also fan the frets, but having a good 90 degree string angle across the saddles beats anything else out there. Fifth: Is a personal choice in that I love bell brass for bridges. Some people say it is a ''tone sink'' or ''tone suck(er)'', but I disagree. I have been very fond of bell brass since Bernie Rico''s BC Rich Quadmatic bridge first graced my guitars. A brass Quadmatic on a Melodymaker made one of my favorite guitars of all time. In short, it''s ABM quality, it allows all kinds of flexibility, & it''s designed well too.
