Does Jerome still make the bridges?

A rare sighting of the Spanish...
How I wish you were selling, rather than displaying it.
Thanks for sharing anyway.

Mick,

I have a Cedar Nylon on order.  I was just wondering if Jerome still makes the bridges for these guitars?

"It looks like they're using the same bridge. I don't know what Jerome would do differently. I would definitely contact him about knobs though."

Mick,

I already ordered a set and he's making them in Brazilian Rosewood.

Thanks for that story. I had read that some employees were allergic to ceder and that's why they stopped making guitars from it. The fact that is was Ken himself is pretty awful.

I have the same problem with Cedar. That's the biggest reason I didn't go after the Cedar Fly's that Jamie recently posted. They look and sound incredible I'm sure, but I have to stay away from them! [:(]

So Chris and I are guitar buddies, I guess, as I'm buying the other cedar nylon. And thanks, again, Mick, for the tip on Jerome.

I'm honored to be your guitar buddy John.  And thanks to you for getting the whole ball rolling on the Cedar Nylons.  I really owe the fact that I went for the Cedar Bronze to you and your review of your Cedar.  I'm so glad I did.  I'm really enjoying this guitar so much.  Thanks John.
