Gallery of Bridge Modifications

     Probably the biggest limitation of the Musicmaster/Duo-Sonic was the three-saddle adjustable bridge. Some of the more creative solutions I've seen are on this page; be sure to also check the MM-to-DS mods gallery for some more examples. Also listed are some more drastically modified MM/DS guitars, one of which is mine.
