Total: $0.00

This device is easy to set up and needs only a single extra clamp, such as the Ibex Bridge Clamp.

Our machined aluminum caul is 5-7/8" long and 1" wide, and has a slightly arched bottom to accommodate most bridges on flattop steel-string acoustic guitars.

It's padded with thick cork on the underside and on the thumbscrew-adjustable end clamps.

I am new at guitar repair and have found that this does not fit all bridges. But over all it works well.

Great for various Bridges

Where has craftsmanship flown?

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.

Good tool!

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 ù unlike on the dry run. However, very good tool.

good but...

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.

Very good but...

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.

Great even pressure!

This clamp is great for putting even pressure on an acoustic bridge. I couldn't do it without this tool!
