It has been my good fortune to have Armadillo Machine Works here in Austin. Micheal and I have worked side-by-side for over a decade developing Cardinal hardware, and his tremendous skill and patience have proven invaluable in creating something that sets Cardinal apart.
Machined bridge plates (never stamped) and saddles, custom control knobs and switch tips, pickup mounting rings, neck plates, strap buttons, and string ferrules are all custom made for Cardinal by AMW. They are of the highest quality alloys, the tightest of tolerances, and the slightly patinated finished product is as good as it gets.
And as with the Cardinal pickups, I am finally offering these to the end user after countless requests. They are machined in small batches, with an attention to detail that you will see and feel immediately. Worth every penny.
