Selmer & Sorkin??

The tailpiece on John Lennon's 58' 325 was made by Selmer (under contract for Bigsby). Is this the same deal with Sorkin? Why didn't Selmer make the bridges? Did Bigsby make both the tailpiece vibrato and the bridge here in the U.S.?

Sorkin was just the name of a company that dealt these parts that they acquired from Bigsby. Selmer did make the bridges too.
