I'm wondering if any of you out there have used this style bridge before? It's a rosewood platform with a bone nut inserted. Holes for 3 strings predrilled. I am thinking this style bridge must be…Continue

"If done properly gluing with titebond is fine. Here's a pic of a 12 string guitar I built just glue holding that bridge on. JL, sounds like the glue held ok, it was the ply's in the timber that let go."

"I would think glue would fine on a 3 stringer. It should only be about 30-40lbs of tension tuned G2,D3,G3."

JL replied to Robbie's discussion Jili Bridges for 3 string
"Glue only is likely why it comes with a tag for plastic strings only. Bronze will rip it right off.  as a teenager I ruined a good Sears catalog 6 string with the wrong strings. the bridge, glue, and several layers of the plywood face dangled…"

"Hi also remember to secure the ends of cross braces to the sides if you want real strength/support.  My thought is that that a simple transverse brace/s  would provide enough support with maybe a bridge plate inside. Either way structural…"

"Any suggestions on what type of glue? 5 minute epoxy? The strings are fed through the  holes then over the bone bridge and I was thinking that would cause a lot of stress on the top of the box."

" I see, thanks Richard. It threw me when mentioned screwing a bridge to the neck. That type of bridge would be glued to the guitar top. It must be a through neck.  Screwing the bridge to the neck through the top, would kill any good…"

"Thanks everyone!. I'm using metal (rivet) string retainers through the bottom of neck so I can run a wire from a rivet where it goes through the neck to I guess the one of the 2 pots. I am using a wood and bone bridge"

"As mentioned, you will get hum through your amp until you ground the strings with your hand/fingers, if you don't run a wire to anything that contacts the strings like the bridge or tailpiece. You will of course need a metal saddle on a wooden…"

"Hi Robbie your description is a little confusing mate. Are you referring to the nut on the end of the fingerboard, or the bridge [with a bone saddle] on the top. Yes a photo would help. Taff "
