US company Mastery have just announced new coloured versions of their hardware on their Facebook page. The company is highly regarded for making Jazzmaster, Jaguar and Telecaster upgrade hardware and so this new colourful range is quite exciting. They say availability is slated for February 16th, but say that “supply will be very limited”.
They come in anodized aluminum/stainless steel Mastery Bridge, Vibrato kits in Blue, Red, Orange, Green, Purple, Turquoise and black. I really like Mastery bridges and so do a lot of pro players like Troy Van Leeuwen from QOTSA or Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth. They make bridges that give a traditional offset bridge a run for its money. They allegedly offer better intonation and greater stability plus much better sustain, when compared to the original Leo Fender-designed vintage bridges. This has made them popular with Jazzmaster and Jaguar players as a worthwhile upgrade to their guitars.
There’s not much information or any pricing as yet, other than some pictures on their Facebook page. If you fancy a matching orange bridge for your vintage offset then head over to the Mastery Facebook Page page and take a look.
