Bridge Clamp for Slot Repair

By

Verified Buyer


I ordered the Ibex bridge Clamp and #10. & #20 super glue to reseat and glue a lifting saddle slot repair. This guitar had been previously repaired with an oval piece of wood where the saddle originally was and that piece was being brought up where the bridge pin holes were. I began by slowly clamping the piece of wood down with an aluminum cawl until it was flush. Then used the #10 in the seam and the #20 on top to make a raised berm. It worked great. Now the whole top of the guitar will probably lift but I'll get a couple more years out of it before that repair.

no clearance

No clearance around braces. I wish it had a lip. I know I could make it to have a lip but the other clamps already have available clearance. I think I may be sending it back and getting a different clamp. Otherwise it looks like it is built well. It is light and doesn't stick to magnets.

Excellent for gluing on bridges and even some braces. Was unhappy with some black dust in the design along the sides of the clamp. Have not managed to brush it off. Wonder how I can get rid of it.

Response from StewMac


Thank you for your order. The black dust should come off easily with a wire brush or Naphtha. If not, let us know so we can send a replacement.

Wow this is the needed clamp

By

Verified Buyer


Wow these are fantastic and really strong. I bought 2 of these and 2 mini clamps and now I wish I bought 3 of these and 1 mini clamp. These are absolutely what you need to glue and clamp down a bridge on an acoustic. Strong, powerful and a must have.

Throat too small

By

Verified Buyer


I agree with all the other comments about the opening being too small for most jobs. By the time you have placed a caul deep enough to clear the internal bracing and then placed the bridge clamping caul, it doesn't open far enough. Sure you could 're-engineer' it, but at this price...? I don't think so.

Amost ideal

Verified Buyer


I have three of these. They dont always clear the braces as comfortably as I think they should. Seems the throat of the clamp should be deeper particularly when used with the associated clamping caul.
