I am new at guitar repair and have found that this does not fit all bridges. But over all it works well.
Works well on a variety of bridges.
The machining is Awful. The workmanship on this caul would have been given a D- in high school shop. The pads are glued on crooked. Haven't had occasion to use it yet but the quality does NOT justify the price. This was quickly thrown together and not inspected before being sent out. I will take off the pads and reglue them. This is the first time I have gotten junk from StewMac and have been very pleased with my previous purchases.
We're sorry to hear you had this negative experience with our Bridge Clamping Caul. After seeing your review, we thoroughly re-evaluated our stock. We only found a few units that had this problem and we removed them from inventory. Thank you for speaking up, and again, we apologize that we let you down this time.
Very good tool! Dry run went smoothly. Two things: don't forget to add cauls under the screwed clamps and be careful with the Titebond: everything become very slippery — unlike on the dry run. However, very good tool.
The idea and execution are excellent but this doesn't work well on every guitar. Some bridge designs/shapes don't work with this. Useful sometimes but not the miracle i was hoping for.
This is a very good tool for classical guitar bridges. I will prefer another bridge clamp with the same contour for the acoustic. It will be easier to clean the glue and to add pressure to the bottom of the bridge where is need it.
This clamp is great for putting even pressure on an acoustic bridge. I couldn't do it without this tool!
