Hi, I'm building a wolf shaped guitar with Alligator sensibilities. I'm trying to settle on a bridge. I like to stick to a bit of a traditional Strat style hardtail bridge, but with a top load bridge plate rather than a through the body. All I can find are ones made of zinc or steel and nothing made of brass. Anyone have any idea where I can get an all brass bridge like this? Does it really matter if its all brass? I've been thinking about getting a zinc or steel bridge and replacing the saddles with brass ones. Would that do the trick? Thanks.
Here is one on Reverb but it's pricey.

I think Star made brass stratocaster bridges in the 70s & 80s but I don't know if they made a brass hardtail bridge for stratocasters.
