  1. Dear @Greg Voros, I posted a topic on a cracked bridge yesterday. In the event that it requires replacing, do I need to take a night class in physics? Or should the new one pretty much line up? The patient is an electro-acousic. Does replacement bridges need extra attention like routing the slot, etc. Due to my need for instant gratification, I've put CA in the cracks (by the slot ends). I'll know by tomorrow if that does the trick.

No wonder the saddle pitches forward under pressure! And the intonation is spot on. Imagine that. And my question is this: will a StewMac, Allparts, et al, replacement bridge fall into place or do I need to take a night class in physics? Digression: Once upon a time,
