Any chance it’s stock? I bought a stinky (Smokey) ‘97 Bluesbird and I didn’t notice the bridge until I had the guitar in my hand.

I've not seen that bridge on any of the (too many) Bluesbirds I've owned. Looks cool, though.

Speak of the devil. I just got this '90's one in my shop and saw this. Not sure if this repair was done in factory or not but intonation point is still too far forward.

I found some of those bridges in the last batch of parts I got.

I installed the 510 on the SF4 and it finally intonated well.
