sai the explorer Posted September 28, 2010 Report Share Posted September 28, 2010 Hey guys, So I'm getting ready to build a solid body electric mandolin that essentially amounts to a scaled down (36 cm/~14 in scale), 5 string electric guitar. As it's not a very common instrument, neither are the parts. However, I have found a couple of pictures that would aid me in my quest as it were. Which brings me to my point: How can I find (or even make?) a bridge like the one on this electric mandolin? http://www.mike-sabre.com/Instrumentspast/...-1012-full.html I get the feeling that it's a 5 string electric bass bridge, but I'm not 100% convinced, especially because the string gauges of the two instruments are so vastly different. Any ideas? Thanks! P.S. I hope this is an appropriate place to post this question; I'm new to both the guitar building scene and the guitar building forum scene!
