    Has Callaham Guitars gone out of business?

    Their website doesn't seem to be working.

    Might be closed because of covid. You could try calling to see if they have a message about their status.

    Their site was working earlier this weekend. I bought a bridge last week so I was checking out their page for more info before ordering one.

    Looks like the site is back up again today. I just installed my US Vintage wide bridge with narrow/standard string spacing yesterday and am very happy. The strings not being so close to the edge on the higher frets made a bigger difference to playability than I anticipated.

    After reading quite a few concerns about added brightness and potentially sterile sound I was a little worried. Especially with the 50's style maple neck and Ash body. I put some Pure Vintage 65's in hoping that would balance things out. Sounds great, not particularly bright with those pickups, more clarity and definition than the original bridge so no complaints here :).

    Yep, I was just there, too. Might have just been a server issue, or an upgrade of software.

    I have the whole bridge assembly in a US Standard strat. It was a subtle but noticeable improvement. Particularly in the tone unplugged

    Both my stage Roland Ready Strats have the Callaham vibrato bridges... much better tuning stability!!
