The bridge is supported by three stud bolts: one mounted at the rear of the base plate in addition to the two main studs. These studs serve to lock the bridge in place and efficiently transmit string vibration into the body.
Mick Thomson's signature MTM2 is an example of model using the Fixed Edge III.
The standard version was developed for six-string guitars, but a version is also made for eight-string instruments. This model shares a similar design and is known as the FX Edge III-8 or Fixed Edge III-8.
