Kevin’s Eastman Bridge Replacement
Recently Kevin brought his Eastman over for a bridge repair. Here are a few pics of the process.
Ouch! Cracked bridge.
Oh yeah... really cracked.
Fitting the bridge to the manolin top.
You can see that the feet are fully engaged.
Kevin’s fretboard is radiused, so the saddle got a radius sanded into it as well. Here the string spacing is cut based on Kevin’s preference. Thanks to Gary for tracing his string spacing.
String spacing cut in the saddle vise.
Placing the bridge and setting intonation.
Checking the string spacing one more time.
Ready to go pick!
