Stew Posted February 20, 2006 Report Share Posted February 20, 2006 Well someone gave this to me to experiment with repairs. He found this in a rummage sale, sitting in it's case in direct sunlight for hours. He opened the case and found the wooden bridge mount coming unglued and starting to lift off the soundboard by the string tension. The bridge has individual flat head screws to mount (not glued) and I found underneath the pearloid inlay, is two hidden phillips head screws. But the screws are larger in diameter than the inlays. I thought maybe the inlays were to cover up the screws. The screws don't seem to have any connection with the bridge at all. The screws are flush under the raising bridge. Here are some pics to better describe what's going on. The glue has hardened. So what can I do to remove the bridge and reglue? Of course I will remove the strings and pins first.
