You have to upload them to a 3rd party site like imgur, then paste the HTML link given from the 3rd party website.

I have a few of the ebony pieces with the slots cut and can supply a piece of 1/8 brass for someone
able to work the brass with a dremel tool.  I use a metal cutoff blade. First I grind the ends round and then,
I am able to grind  a 14 inch radius then lightly file. Next use 220 - 320 - 400 - 600 grit and finally polish
with 1000 then 2000 grit.

The stud spacing in mine are 2 7/8 - You may have to drill the stud holes out a little but I think
most are pretty much a standard size.  PM me if you need one.

Hey Trunkyfunk. I'd be interested too. Where is your luthier based?

Luthier is based in St George Utah. He basically made a brass version of the equator one...Similar to Roberts but higher in quality. My builder made the piece mate with the bottom plate for optimal transfer of energy. I would be happy to pass him along. PM me and I can help yall out. I looked into Roberts', and his seemed hastily built and varying in quality. It seems as though you need tall brass, to allow for greater clearance on the strings to the tail piece.

I ordered a saddle from the guy in Colorado. I'll let everyone know my thoughts when I get it. I'll post pics also. Peace and love.

Wanted to bump and old thread.

I purchased a used ollandoc recently for a parlor guitar. It had a tune-o-matic bridge, i bought a bridge from phred. Brought it to a luthier who had to grind the ebony down and he also slotted the bone.

Tone is noticeably better/different. Pretty happy the way it came out.
