I am thinking of getting a higher bridge (Dupont Nr.3) as the string Action is Just a little Bit too low (already shimed on the high E) I have all the tools to fit the bridge, but I am still struggling with the way to exactly measure the height of the bridge on the high and low E in order to file it down to the correct specification. I want to keep the correct radius of the bridge, and the stringaction height difference between high E and low E side (0,5 mm). Therefore I would like To measure the bridge from time to time while filing it down. I know where to go with the Bridge Nr. 3 by measuring Bridge Nr.2 and adding just a little bit, to get rid of the buzz.
But what is the best way to measure the absolut bridge height exactly ? Measuring with a Caliper by putting the Bridge on a flat ruler and measuring the distance from bottom of the ruler to the top to the bridge ? Is the slot depth inlucded (the slot is to thin on the high E) ? DOn which position should I measure ? Are there any special tools available ?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks and greetings from Austria
I hope you find this helpful
@twang: Thanks, I know the video already - not enough experience for the freestyle approach though. I really prefer to measure :)
Just in case anyone is interested: I found the perfect tool for measuring the bridge height for 20 EURO (Picture
Nice tool find! There's a good example of that precise German engineering.
PS just realized from that other thread you're in Austria. Sorry, saw the name and assumed wrongly, "slap face" emotion...
No worries, Austria is close enough to germany to have those precise german engineering characteristics ?
