This is what I love about you guys. Every time I start thinking that I've got it all figured out, someone comes up with something genius like this that completely knocks me on my ass. Bravo to you, sir.
I'm new to CBG's , but old to guitars . Seen "lots" . but you have "no" metal/springs/screws/,.. Simple design . Four pieces of "natural" materials and you have just re-invented the "floating" bridge !!! Josh Gayou of Smoke House Guitars , said it best ,.. "Genius" .
The "fit" of all the pieces is the important part.
1) The track keeps anything from moving when you strum
2) The saddles have to be long for a couple reasons
a) for plenty of surface area touching on the sides when you slide them front and back. (for stability)
b) to have plenty of contact with the soundboard to transfer sound
3) There needs to be a pretty good slant on the saddle tops so that the string track isnt too big causing hangups when tunning
