New Bridge for Dreadnaught Guitar

The Ebony bridge broke loose from this beautiful custom made Dreadnaught guitar, splintering and tearing away pieces of its Sitka spruce top. In order to hide the extensive patch and splice work needed to replace the missing top wood, an over-sized bridge needed to be fabricated. The instrument was the favorite in the owner’s collection and he commissioned me to design a one of a kind, hand carved bridge with distinctive inlay. I took step by step photographs which reveal the entire process.
