No more hex bars, sorry.

No more hex bars, sorry. You'll have to look elsewhere for bars, not worth the time and effort.

Kinda sad... but necessary, I suppose. I think the custom shorty bar you made for me just jumped in value.

Sorry to hear this. Great work Alex, I too have the honor of a few custom size bars. Thanks again!

Actually, that happened to me, too! Now I don't feel like the Lone Ranger.

But, the Lone Ranger did come to the rescue, didn't he? So now that I will not be stepping on any renowned forum members production niche, I want to share a perfectly good source for these custom bars.

Myself and another forum member helped with some R&D on these and I have a "Short Dog" bar in hex stock. He worked the bends just right for me and it hovers just under my palm while I finger pick. It's considerably better for me than the original, especially when I removed the knob.
He prefers to work through Ebay so I probably shouldn't post his email here but you can send a message through Ebay. There's 4 for sale right now.

Anybody who wanted one before I ran out which was just a few days ago didn't follow instructions or I didn't see their request. Sorry.

No worries here, Alex. You certainly helped me out a time or two in the past, for which I thank you.

Good to see that it still is possible to acquire a tremolo bar!

As a newbie, I am wondering whether there are substantial differences between "MINI BAR" and a regular one? Pros/cons? Thanks :)

Thanks for the new trem bar source Tectonix!   8)
