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.

Easiest Bridge Removal Ever!

(Customer's Reviews)

Bridge removal has always been a nail biter for me and difficult to do without some evidence left in the form of damage to the finish. The thin, stiff blade of this tool easily gets under the bridge and has a wide enough footprint to prevent pressure marks and scuffs on soft tops.The padded wood handle is tough enough for some gentle tapping with a mallet.
Well worth the money in time saved and clean, undamaged soundboards.

Used the spatula for the first time on a Taylor. Easy to use, felt protects the finish, pliable but firm enough to do the job.

Great tool! Works perfectly in combination with a mini bridge heating blanket. Able to remove my bridge in 5 min, watch in hand! And then to clean up the mess and glue back my bridge!
