Bridges: Bart Veerman "Archie" bridge

Overall Comments

I'm using the Archie bridge on a mid 1970's Gibson RB800  (rim upgraded to a Cooperman 3 ply, and turned for a Cox archtop ring).  I tried several quality bridges that I already own and was not happy.  So I decided to try the "Archie" bridge.

The "Archie" has helped me achieve the pop, brightness, and clarity I was looking for.  Also,  I am very surprised at the presence of the 4th string from such a thin bridge!  If you are looking for an archtop bridge, consider the Veerman "Archie".

Overall Rating: 10
