7 string bridge, with fine tuning?

I'm building a 7 string guitar. The problem is that I want my bridge to have fine tuning ( like a tremolo has)... does this thing even exists?
with thanks.. MR. Dubin

Why exactly do you want a fine tuning bridge? There really isnt any use for it if you dont have a locking nut.

What he said ^. I don't think something like a fixed bridge with fine tuning exists, simply because there is no use for it.

I would try finding some tuners with a higher gearing ratio if you want finer tuning capabilities. Or use heavier strings.

Kahler 2317 is a 7-string bridge with fine-tuning and can be locked into position so it effectively becomes a fixed bridge
