Neapolitan Bridge : ‘Silvestri’

    This is a hand-made replacement bridge in ebony or rosewood and bone, to fit old bowlback Neapolitan mandolins, and is based on an existing bridge on a Silvestri bowlback.

   It is 120mm long, 15-20mm tall before fitting, and 5mm wide, tapering to 3-4mm at the top. The bone saddle is approximately 50-55mm long. It will suit required bridge heights of 8-15mm.

   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.
