When the museum purchased the Emperor s/n 10465, it had a bridge with s/n 12201 blind stamped on the underside of the bridgefoot. The bridge originally must have been on the De Luxe s/n 12201, which emerged April 2015 at archtopcom. In 2018 it was for sale at Carter Vintage Guitars. The current owner of De Luxe 12201 is Australian singer/guitarist CW Stoneking.
One wonders whether the original bridge of Emperor s/n 10465 is still around somewhere. If you have any information on the matter, please contact us about it and we most certainly will get back to you.
