Mickguard Posted January 9, 2007 Report Share Posted January 9, 2007 My friend's kids tore his cheapo POS ukulele apart... since he was going to throw it in the trash, I asked him if I could try to fix it (he really liked playing it, but knowing him, he'll never buy himself a new one, much less a real instrument). I'm ready to glue the bridge back on, but I'm wondering-- should I slant the bridge like one would on a guitar, or should the bridge be straight? I've seen photos with both --SwedishLuthier posted a pic of his super-cool electric uke, and it looks like he put a the bridge on a slant there. But it's hard to tell. And if it does need a slant, how much of an angle should that be (I don't have much leeway, if I want to be able to hide the repair). I'm not sure if it'll matter at all...we're talking plastic strings... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
