Why not? It leaves the option of a Flatbucker pickup in the future?
Hi Mel, yes that style of bridge will work, but acoustic sound will suffer. These heavy-style bridges are designed for electric guitars, normally made of solid timber.
As the aim of this is to not lose string motion or vibration into the timber body. Hardwood is also used for the same reason, to increase sustain.
The loss of any acoustic sound does not matter in these guitars as pickups are used to convert the string's frequencies into the sound that we hear.
In acoustic instruments, it's the top or soundboard coupled to the air in the box that does the work of the electric guitar's pickup, converts the strings' vibrations into sound. The better the top can respond to string vibration the better the output of the acoustic instrument.
Looking at your photo, and as you asked, I would suspect the output of your guitar as planned, might be very thin [tinny] due to a top that may not be as responsive as it could be. Added to this is the fact that the box looks shallow [not much air space] and the through neck will also affect air volume. Nice looking box though.
Sorry to be a bit wordy on the subject, but these are the things I take into account when planning a guitar of any kind.
I also remember that it's only a crude box so don't expect too much, just get the best out of it that I can.
Thanks Taff, I had some suspicions that what you have stated might be the case. I'll most likely use a different bridge.
