Bridge Installation

Here you see that I am clearing out the filler that I had previously used to keep water out of the holes in the body. This filler nevery hardened since I painted the guitar shortly after filling the holes, and the holes were easy to find because they each show a slight depression. I used a drill bit and my finger tips to remove the filler.

Once the bridge is in place (again, there are differing opinions on this) I install all six screws, tightening each one down until the tail of the bridge just lifts, then I slightly loosen it again. This results in tight fitting bridge that does not bind.
