Hello,

I'm planning to build strat style guitar with ilitch noise cancelling system, and it was recommended to use an all steel bridge. Most of the strat bridges I am seeing have brass plates or do not say what material. Any recommendation on a bridge with 2-1/16" spacing that will fit a Warmoth routing and is all steel?

Thanks!

Edit: I'm looking for hardtail

Hmm, I've never heard of an all steel strat bridge... Are you looking for a tremolo or hardtail?

Hardtail.I should have specified that


I found this: https://hipshotproducts.com/products/6-string-hardtail-guitar-bridge

But Im not sure it will fit a Warmoth routing. It also looks like a slightly wider than 2-1/16 string spacing, but is probably close enough playability wise. Just not sure about if it will fit right.

Callaham uses a cold rolled steel baseplate. Am. Std. Hardtail w/ 6 Narrow Vintage Styled "CG" Saddles

Perhaps you could check with Callaham if it compares dimensionally with the below bridge. If so you would need the NARROW SPACED STRAT® FLAT-MOUNT BRIDGE rout.

Edit. It probably would more closely fit the American Standard Flatmount rout...
