Workshop: Pesky Old Bridges


Four bolts installed through a classical-style poplar bridge installed on a 40s Martin steel-strung 0-17. I mean, come on. This kind of stuff is just irritating to remove. Generally because the glue sets up against the bolts you have to chisel away at the bridge until you have leverage on them to turn them ever so slightly with pliers from the top and free them up.

It's all fixed, though, and in the morning the new/old "belly" bridge will get a brand new bone saddle.
