The Babicz FCH Original Series Hardtail Fixed Bridge is made from aluminium and features their patented eCAM saddles. The guitar string sits on their specially shaped 'encapsulated cam' which when adjusted, rotates in the housing smoothly changes the action of the string up or down, because the cam is fully supported by the saddle housing, which sits flush on the base plate, the connection between the string and the guitar body is greatly increased, maximising sound transmission. A separate screw locks the height adjustment of the saddle in place once action has been set. The smooth saddle tops and bridge surround are comfortable on the hand when palm muting and there is a screw in the bridge side wall to lock against the saddles, preventing any sideways movement. The FCH Original has three elongated mounting screw slots to offer a universal fit on most American standard and vintage fixed bridge Stratocaster guitars, and the bridge uses through body string mounting.

Very refined piece of engineering - Thank you
This is what a hard tail bridge should have been on F****r guitar all those years ago.
But we had to wait for Jeff Babicz to finish the job.
This transformed my 1972 Thinline and promoted it to my main go-to guitar it should always have been.
Thank you Jeff!
