you could make your own out of a piece of angle iron or just buy a top-loader from china ebay £2.00, i usually buy a beat up complete old guitar and use everything except the body, then you have all the part's you need, then sell the body,

Yeah thats what im doing for the neck and electronisc but I'm not sure the bridge is in good enough condition to use

CB Gitty sells a great little 6 stringbridge here for only $10
