I’m really excited about this new design for a bridge that I came up with and thought that I would share with you. Every so often, I get questions about how to eliminate the “buzz” from cigar box guitars. Well, part of that buzz has to do with the bridge since that is one of the main points where the string vibration terminates. While rooting around in my shop for some alternative parts that I could substitute for a bridge; I came across a cabinet hinge. I seperated the two halves of the hinge and replaced the hinge pins with an 8 penny nail that is soldered in place and Viola!…..I had a bridge. The hinge spacing and height work perfectly and I’m getting great sound without any buzz. I plan to use this new bridge design for the latest batch of Cigar Box Guitars being made for an upcoming show.
