Carl:
Shouldn't the bridge be glued on? You want a very solid joint between the bridge and the top of the guitar. That's how the sound gets to the body. I'm no luthier but I think I am right. Can't imagine how a bridge could be pinned on.

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.

Re: Guitar or Other Instrument Players

I have a beautiful Larivee but the bridge has a crack running through all the string holes.
I have to send it back for repair. I suppose I could buy the bridge ($200) and glue it on myself but I'm totally inept with any tool so I would always be in doubt of my repair. And, I'd be terrified trying to remove the existing bridge. I just have a problem with mailing off my nice guitar.

For a guitar that expensive, I'd definitely take it to a pro. Either Larrivee or a local luthier.

I called Larrivee and I have decided to ship it back to them for the repair. I want it done right.
