JLD Bridge Doctor

About This Item

• Enhances volume
• Flattens 'bellied' soundboards

A unique solution to a common bridge problem, this spruce device attaches beneath a guitar bridge. An adjustable spruce "pressure post" rests against the tail block, providing leverage to flatten the soundboard.

The spruce block is 3/4" x 1-5/8" x 3-3/8" tall. The 1/4"-diameter tension rod is 9" long. The mounting post has three different positions to accomodate a variety of bridge styles.

Screw mount: This spruce device attaches beneath the bridge via an inlaid screw (a white pearloid dot is included to hide the bridge screw). An adjustable spruce pressure post rests against the tail block, providing leverage to flatten the soundboard. Better bridge contact and alignment can also enhance sound projection.

Brass pin mount: The pin-mounted version of the JLD Bridge Doctor attaches beneath the bridge using a threaded brass bridge pin. The strings mount horizontally through the tops of the matching brass bridge pins (included).

StewMac Tech Tip: We recommend the brass pin mount version for 12-string guitars.

JLD Bridge System

This is the second time I've used this, and I'm 2 for 2. The last one was a 1981 Takamine with a HUGE belly. Both lengths of the X brace had come loose. Once I fixed those, it was pretty good, but then I put this in and made it flat. For those that this didn't work for, you may have other problems that need to be addressed first.

Easy to use and is an affordable way to repair belly bulge. Great for those cheep import guitars. Works best if you adjust it slowly over a months time.

Terrific product, works like a charm!

It was easy to install, and it flattened the top nicely. I also noticed more sustain and volume. Great product!

Worked great. After gluing the bridge on 3 times and having it pull up after stringing each time this worked!

This is the greatest thing since wrapped chewing gum ! I've installed several on vintage guitars
that owners were desperate to save...they install easily and work like a charm. Can adjust to remove most of the belly bulge, without putting too much strain on the top. I then instruct the owner on the
simple task of adjusting it as needed ( so far no one has needed further tension applied)

Works great

I installed it on a laminate top because the bridge started to lift a bit. I still need to let it settle for a while but it definitely changed the sound of the guitar. It’s a bit more tight I think. My wife noticed a change right away, had the feeling that it sounded better, but couldn’t say how it changed...
The only problem I am is that the wood dowel could not be install straight because of the pickup plug that is also the strap button. I had to install the dowel on one side of plug incorporated with the strap button...

I've installed this on a late 70's Aries nylon string guitar that had a belly hump. The Bridge Doctor once installed flattened the hump.
