Working on a dog bowl resonator at the moment and am struggling to find a suitable bridge. A couple of hardware store trips and looks around the fixings, drawer handles, plumbing sections have turned up nothing. In the past I've used bolts, hardwood, corner braces, but need to attach this differently. I'm not looking for advice so much but just wondering: what random, weird, interesting stuff have you used for a bridge?
Hi Muddystone, my bridges are not "out there" so to speak, I look for what is going to give me the best sound. But if my build is fully electric It's not so important.
I use wood/ bone combinations for acoustic CBGs and for electric CBGs any metal object that can be fashioned into a bridge. The wrap-over bridge on the right would be unsuitable for an acoustic guitar in both material and position.
I know you're not looking for advice...but, check out all the many photos posted here, I recon your request may have already been posted. Good luck.
