Restoring Grampa's Guitar

Bridge Repairs

Thursday, October 7, 2010

This old bridge has a very poorly made saddle slot. I' m going to deepen it and make it smooth and even for a new 3/32" saddle. First I'll saw the edges of the existing slot straight.

I'll make the slot a little over 1/8 " deep.

This little 1/16 inch chisel does a great job. Partly because it is really sharp!
