Hey Kevin:  
 
Although it won't help you much, it may be beneficial from an idea standpoint, I placed a picture of my U2 bridge on alt.binaries.pictures. It is simply labelled "bridge". You'll have to wade through some smutty headings, but you see it there at around 12:30 pm EST.  
It's complete over-kill from an obsessive compulsive disorder that has me always searching for something better. I designed it entirely and had a machine shop crank it out from a hunk of stainless. To save a few bucks, I told them "awww don't bother buffing it, I'll handle that." Geeeesh, talk about some hard shit to work with. As you can see I used Am Std. strat saddles (offset screw to work with my rear-load string design), and used the original body-mounting holes. It STILL sounds like a Dano, but WAY better (tone-wise) *and* it intonates near-perfectly. I also had a bone nut and Klusons put on.......rewired for a single vol. and tone control and.......well, you get the idea. I recently went directly into the board with this guitar and flipped out. It sounds like a freaking acoustic!  
 
Good luck,  
 
Bill
