The Bridges of MacKenzie and Marr County

Enhancing sustain with the asymmetric bridge

Using an asymmetric design to enhance sustain

We do things differently than other guitar brands. Take our bridges for example. Most makers use a standard symmetric bridge. The rise from the body at the bass and treble sides is identical. The bass end of the inserted saddle protrudes above the bridge more than the treble end.

Our bridges are asymétric, 2 to 3 mm higher on the bass side than the treble, allowing the saddle to seat evenly and deeply across all the strings. The improved bone-to-wood contact results in less frequency loss, longer sustain, and strong overtones.

Our asymmetric bridge design is one of the reasons the sound of MacKenzie and Marr guitars is often called “orchestral”.
