'Pyramid' Guitar Bridge

About This Item

Old style pyramid contours. Here's a 6-string bridge with sculpted pyramid contours, for building a smaller 00 or 000-size flattop acoustic guitar.

It's made of unpolished ebony and measures 6" x 1" x 0.350". Unlike a vintage bridge, the saddle slot (3/32" wide x 2-7/8") is angled for improved intonation, and the bridge pin holes are aligned parallel to the slot. The holes are countersunk and are partially drilled for 2-5/16" string spread. Saddle not included.

The bridge pin holes are drilled straight and may require the use of a tapered reaming tool for a tight bridge pin fit. We recommend our Bridge Pin Hole Reamer for matching the taper of your endpins.

Repair on a 1800s Parlor guitar

I have not yet used the bridge, but the quality is wonderful. The guitar needs major work, and I’m hoping to use the bridge soon.

...this pyramid-style bridge is just right for my first build. Was easy to CNBC the holes and slot, and it wax and buffed up nicely.

the last 3 orders on these bridges is showing a low quality. I have had to return bridges . Yes the customer service is great but please get your supplier to use better material. Cracks and pin holes are rampant and are visual issues that should and need to be addressed.

Less finished, more work than you might expect.

By

I bought the unslotted, undrilled version, as my little old parlor guitar had a wider string spacing than the drilled one (you would have to be lucky for that to be just right if your guitar is not standard old Martin specs). From reading the other reviews, I don't know if I got a sub-standard piece, but it was evident that it was produced on a pin router, and those grooves from end to end had to be scraped and sanded out, which took some time and reduced the thickness at the edges to barely enough. Like everyone else, I'm looking for a time-saver. For the price, I had hoped for a more finished product and a bit more time saved. Even slotted and drilled, don't expect to be able to slap it right on the guitar.

Saves a lot of time

Precisely engineered. If you get the model without the holes or slot, make sure to orient the bass side correctly when drilling your holes prior to your compensated saddle slot

Major Time Saver

Back in the 90's I had to hand carve these from scratch. I actually got pretty good at it although it was a skill I didn't necessarily want. I refuse to say how long it took.

Perfect Restoration Item

By

Verified Buyer


Excellent start point for bridge restoration but watch the quality doesn't drop StewMac. I'm just completing the restoration of 1897 Martin 0-28 and its a real time saver. Like Bruce Herrman I prefer to keep to as close a spec as the original, hence notched saddle. To complete the effect I've found it necessary to produce my own large headed bone bridge pins but really worthwhile I believe.

Good pyramid bridge

By

Verified Buyer


I've always purchased these un-slotted and un-drilled. The 1 x 6 size is about right. I do some modifications to get a bit closer to Martin's old bridges but find them to be a good starting point when I don't have time to make one from scratch.

In some situations I like to restore the guitar to an original look and will cut the saddle slot straight, non-compensated. I made up a jig that allows this bridge to drop in, set up my router and in two or three passes I have a perfect saddle slot. Adjust it a bit and I can compensate the saddle slot easily. Nice bridge for many instruments.
