Re: Guitar or Other Instrument Players

Yes, a normal guitar bridge is glued on, though not with epoxy or CA...it's better to use a reversible glue like aliphatic resin (e.g., Titebond) or hide glue so that the bridge can be worked on in the future without ripping the top apart.

Who knows with a travel guitar though. There's a lot of low-end stuff in that market, and I guess anything is possible. There are some old Gibsons out there with bolted-on bridges, which is abstractly a terrible idea, IMO.
