Modern Bone Bluegrass Compensated Bridge

   This is a replacement bridge in rosewood or ebony and bone, to fit bluegrass/Gibson-style mandolins. It has a hand-made compensated bone bridge-top that allows a slightly longer scale length to the 2nd and 4th strings.

   It is 120mm long, 10-20mm tall before fitting. The bone saddle is 55-60mm long. The spread of string slots is about 38-40mm. It will suit required bridge heights of 10-20mm, depending on the top dome.

   It will need to be fitted. String slots may be omitted or altered if required, but by the nature of the compensated sections, the string placement is fairly fixed.
