A Bridge Too Far...

My bridge is the bridge from another guitar which I subsequently removed with the use of a wood chisel and two kitchen knives. The bridge was dowelled so I sanded it down flush. However, the bridge was meant for a right handed guitar, so myself and Gary had to make some modifications. I inserted a strip of maple into the saddle slot and sanded it flush with the bridge. Gary then changed the jig to a left handed channel router and routed it out. I then sanded a bit of bone to make the saddle.
The bridge was flush with the top plate so I glued it on. Next would be shaping the nut, saddle and finally STRINGING IT UP!!!
