I recall following some dialog on bridges a while back, but I don't remember any specifics about the space between the feet of the bridge. Is there an optimum length for this arch, and for the height of the arch (the distance between the top of the gtr. and the bridge in this arch)? Also is the arch between the feet what is being refered by the use of the term "hollow", as in "hollow bridge" (I saw this on one builder's web site describing the bridge he sells)? Or does the term indicate that additional material is removed from the underside of the bridge? I'm replacing the factory bridge on a Gitane, which is much too low. The bridge appeared to be somewhat "hogged out" underneath.
Thanks for any responses,
