Hi all, here is a series of photos showing  one way to make a bridge, I thought it may help newcomers, after my mate asked me to make one for is CBG.

The whole process took 15 minutes max from start to finish, don't worry if it takes you longer with hand tools there's no rush. With this method you can make many at the same time.

Enjoy Taff

Hi ghm, yep all correct. The saddle should have no wriggle room, but not tight or binding in its slot. Just a push fit that won't full out it turned upside down.

Another way is the 4 piece bridge

Nice.

Hi, here's another bridge I made for one of my acoustic guitars, Its rosewood and will have a bone saddle.

Cheers Taff
