Neapolitan Bridge : ‘Minieri

    This is a hand-made replacement bridge in ebony or rosewood and bone, to fit old bowlback It can also be fitted with a brass saddle, as in the original. Neapolitan mandolins, and is based on an existing bridge on an Minieri bowlback.

   It is 125mm long, 12-15mm tall before fitting, and 7-8mm wide at the base and 6mm at the top. The bone saddle is approximately 45mm long. It will suit required bridge heights of 4-10mm depending on the curvature of the top.

   It will need to be fitted, but comes with a slightly curved foot, to begin fitting to the domed Neapolitan top. 

   String slots can be cut if requested, but I will need to know required spread of strings.
