My name is Roland Hannes and I started my website to inform you about a new electric guitar bridge, the "Hannes Bridge", which I invented, designed and eventually licensed to Schaller Electronic, a well known German manufacturer of musical instrument products. For a detailed description of the bridge, go to this LINK.
If you want to see some outstanding guitars which have the bridge, go to the Guitar Gallery pages, where you'll also find some video and sound clips.
At the Hannes Bridge page you can download templates for mounting the bridge. Other important aspects of the bridge are aslo discussed on that page.
Go to My Story if you want to find out what led to the design of the Hannes Bridge such as my involvement in the initial stages of the multi-scale concept for guitars.
Please note that the bridge is available in the USA at ALLPARTS, www.allparts.com, and LUTHIERS MERCANTILE INTERNATIONAL, www.lmii.com. You can also order guitar bodies routed for the bridge at USACG, www.usacustomguitars.com . The Brawer Guitar Repair shop, www.brawer.com will rout your guitar body for the bridge and do the install.

Graph Tech parts made out of Black Tusq are used in the Hannes Bridge. I have had a long time relationship with Graph Tech in trying to develop the best bridge possible and the use of their materials has been invaluable.
