They have them.  Mine is straight but appears to be the same.  Dimensionally
its identical to my Bent ones.  Its the LATE style with the funky
proprietary bent outer end that I refered to as ³Bent².

Anyhow, thanks for the tip.  If I cant find the Suzuki ends I¹ll try this.

I got 2 from Blau  back at x-mas time.    Blaufernugen.    Early  style with
the 2 bends.
