Ebony Archtop Guitar Bridge


Here we have our Ebony Archtop Guitar Bridge. We worked closely with legendary Nashville repair and vintage instrument guru David Harvey to produce this reproduction bridge. David loaned me several vintage Gibson archtop bridges, dating from the early 1900’s and forward. I borrowed the best design attributes from these bridges, and we came up with what we feel to be a perfect replacement for your vintage archtop guitar, and especially appropriate for early model L-1 and comparable archtop models. As a repair person, or archtop enthusiast, you now have a more attractive option than putting a cheap, incorrectly designed imported bridge on your fine instrument. Top quality ebony is used in the construction of this bridge. The compensated saddle has been radiused to work well with radiused fretboards. Thumbwheels for this bridge come with nickel plating. The thumbwheels are now actually a bit larger than on the bridge pictured (.590″ dia.) This ebony archtop guitar bridge measures 9/16″ thick X 1 1/8″ high (at its lowest position) X 5 3/8″ long. As with all bridges of this type, it will require final fitting to the exact contour of the top of the instrument it will be going on. We have allowed extra material on the base to allow for just about any application. Mr. Harvey recently fit one on an early 1900’s Gibson harp guitar that he restored. The results were stunning! Rich, loud bass tones, bright and clear treble notes, with a great balance between the two extremes. As with all of our items, your satisfaction is guaranteed.
