Hi Guys,
Just thought I'd like to share this with you. Trying to fine tune both the intonation and action, I came up with this idea.
6x32 brass bolts and wing nuts, this enables me to make adjustment on the fly. The plastic plate below the wing nuts is from a screw draw divider. Seems to work out OK, what do you think?

Beautiful! the physics of that makes me smile!!! A direct downward point into the box top without a lot of excess mass is perfect because large mass is makes changes in momentum - like and up and down string vibration - more difficult.  The ideal bridge would be a mass-less pin with infinite spring constant, tied directly to the flexible guitar top.

Excellent! I did something close w. flathead screws each into it's own small hardwood square, ea. independent of the others on a 3 stringer. Works excellently! Kudos Niagarajoe! -Glenn
