Bridge Spatula

About This Item

"I saw this in use at Martin's repair shop 20 years ago, and have wanted one ever since!"—Dan Erlewine, guitar repairman

The right tool for bridge removal!
Super-thin and super-stiff, mounted at a shallow angle in a big block handle. The Bridge Spatula gives you more control when separating a loose bridge or fretboard extension from a guitar top. Works wonders for pickguard removal, too.

  • 0.012"-thin (0.3mm) stainless steel is sandwiched between wood blocks at a shallow angle.
  • Exposed steel is 2-1/2" x 5" (63.5mm x 127mm)
  • Hardwood block handle is 2" x 2-1/2" and 1" thick (50.8mm x 63.5mm x 25.4mm)
  • Thick felt on the underside of the tool handle protects the guitar top and helps it smoothly slide under your work.

Necessary tool

Why didn't someone think of this 30 years ago? Its use is so obvious and it serves it so well. The felt on the bottom is a nice touch. Works on fingerboards too.

This really simple tool makes removing bridges so much easier and cleaner than any method I've used before.

THE tool for bridge removing

By

Verified Buyer


This tool is stunning! I used to remove bridges with a narrower spatula and it was often going straight into the wood and not working as it should. This one is wide enough to take the whole width of the bridge in a time and this way it doesn't go into the soundboard. It's thin enough to enter smoothly under the bridge and stiff enough not to twist. The rounded corners are very safe for the polish. Removing a bridge almost becomes easy :)

The tool that I missed

Long ago I made a spatula a little like this for fingerboards and bridges off. But it was too thick and stiff and do not work very well. I decided not to use it longer and I changed for what I found on sale. And I've never been really satisfied ... These tools were mostly not wide enough and when they were thin enough they did'nt resist very often the pressure required to penetrate inside the glue joint. With this new Stewmac's spatula, I tested very shortly after I bought it, I feel much more confident now to complete this task quickly and correctly.

I first saw this in use at Martin Guitar Company but they don't sell them so when I saw it available from Stew Mac I had to order one. Awesome for removing the fingerboard extention from a flat top. Thumbs up!
