It seems Suhr is shipping a new version of the Gotoh double locking bridge to Japan. Looks like the bridge is made in Japan. Does anyone know how this is different than the double locking Gotoh sold in the US and/or if it is a new offering?

The bridge looks like a normal GE1996T to me and it's been around for quite some time as far as I can remember. Btw, Gotoh is a Japanese company and I have never heard that they are making their products specifically for the US market. Correct me if I am wrong, I keep forgetting things these days!

I suppose you're right. I think the bright logo is something fairly recent. Here is an example without any visible logo.

Here is a response from Gotoh in Japan I just spoke with. They laser mark the logo on newer versions.
