Yesterday I worked on the replacement bridge for the EH-150 I am restoring.  I don’t have an original bridge so I used a tracing of the footprint visible on the guitar and pictures.  I used my tablesaw and bandsaw to rough out the shape and cleaned it up with files and sandpaper. A final buffing with Zam brought out a nice shine.  It looks a little tall so I may bring it down at the base but I will wait until everything is ready to go together.  For more photos see here…
