No, but they're close. Next string change is a top wrap and that break will be a lot less. At least that's the plan :smile:
Not counting on how better it looks.

Tip on installing them: so that the end of the twisted part is not on the top of the tailpiece, slide a string ball end on each string before threading in the holes.

And you will then have a bridge that will last more than a couple of years without collapsing
I'd never heard of bridge collapse. It seems like that would be something that would happen to a 60s cheapo guitar with potmetal parts, not a Gibson. So instead of them beefing up the bridge, you have get a new one? How common is bridge collapse, anyway?

I didn't like top wrapping until one day it gave me the idea for my trem. Now I love it.
