Acoustic Bridge Bolts, Package of 4

About This Item

These custom bolts are handy for temporarily mounting a bridge for certain tasks, before the bridge is glued onto the guitar.

    Useful for:
  • Testing intonation
  • Testing string pull and soundboard arch
  • Testing the bridge thickness and saddle height
  • Resetting a neck to the correct alignment

Each bolt is drilled for a guitar string. The top edge is chamfered, and the bolt fits nicely into a bridge pin hole. The thumbnut is knurled to help make installation inside the guitar easy.

Brass, 8-32 thread, 1" (25.4mm) long with knurled thumbnut and washer.
Package of 4. Two required per bridge.

Really handy little items!

I recently completed my first bridge removal and re-gluing "surgery," and these little bolts really helped out at a key point in the process! I'm glad I found them, and will be using them every time I do one of these repairs in the future.

Worked as advertised, wing nuts might be better, but worked fine as is.

What a great tool to have and a great idea. Love these things especially for checking neck alignment when doing neck resets :)

Great for alignment and initial tuning.

I used these bolts to check alignment and position of the bridge and fingerboard before committing to glue. I was also able to string the guitar to check the initial action to plan the final tuning. Finally, I also used them to clamp the bridge when gluing it to the soundboard. The results were exceptional. My guitar has perfect alignment, intonation and action! A very elegant solution to a tricky process.

These are great for aligning bridge and work well to hold damaged tops down for solid repair.

Acoustic Bridge Bolts

They work as described by SM. I agree with another reviewer -- wing nuts would make it easier to install. I used them to turn a pin-bridge into a pinless-bridge. A little tricky to install new strings, but works ok (if you don't mind rather high treble sound).

What a great tool

I love these bolts. I teach a guitar building class and I use these to test the bridge placement for my students. Once we check the E strings, we can even use 6 of them to string the guitar so the student can hear the guitar. Then we can take the bridge off so they clear coat without the bridge on.

It works great, but maybe some wing nuts are needed.

Essential kit

By

Verified Buyer


I just replaced one of those plastic bridges on a '64 Epiphone Caballero and these bolts made getting the intonation perfect before I glued the new one on. I reckon this must be the most useful bit of kit for the least money in the entire Stewmac catalogue.
