What kind of bridge makes a GJ guitar sound best?
I just finished lowering and installing a bridge which I moved from one guitar to another. it does make the guitar sound better (the previous bridge was one of those adjustable archtop type bridges) especially boosting the midrange.
My new bridge is made of rosewood, which I presume is a desirable wood?
Its inside has been hollowed out... Is that good?
it sits atop the guitar on two feet... Is that the best way, or is it better if the whole bridge contacts the guitar's top?
The strings sit in rather shallow indentations, to the point where some of them will come out of the groove if picked too hard...?
comments from everyone are welcome, but I'm especially interested in hearing opinions of luthiers and repairmen...
Paul Cezanne: "I could paint for a thousand years without stopping and I would still feel as though I knew nothing."
Edgar Degas: "Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.... To draw, you must close your eyes and sing."
Georges Braque: "In art there is only one thing that counts: the bit that can’t be explained."
