the pyramid bridges just dont do it for me, but if thats what floats your boat then go for it, its pretty cool how your moving towards modding most of your guitars so they are the way you like it.

There wouldn't be any tan lines because I would fashion the pyramid bridge myself and make it the same L/W as the stock bridge. 

won't that make for one gigantic pyramid bridge?

It'd probably be somewhat of a hybrid; I get what you're saying.  Who knows...I'd have to mess around with it a bit.  Even if it wasn't a hybrid, I doubt it'd really look all that huge....unless you think the current bridges look huge.

Larrivee bridges are already alot larger than Martin bridges, they are  both longer, wider  and (in my case) thicker as well, but that last one varies upon each guitar.

As the bridge is a major part of the structure/braceing it would really interesting to hear yours back to back with a stock L03 if/when you do this.

Sounds like you're having fun, i have thought of doing the same thing to a used LV03R, and getting the top re-fin'd....
