With a little luck I should have the triplets strung up and singing tomorrow. Got the last of the bridges on today
It starts with carefully locating the bridge. I use this reliable old jig clamped at the exact center of the zero fret. I have a trial saddle in the slot and cant it slightly downhill at the bass end to provide proper intonation, and when all is right the position is marked with blue tape.
And more tape, until the bridge is surrounded by several layers, enough to hold it firmly in position when glued.
Now the finish is scraped away down to bare wood so that the glue will grab,
The glue is applied and my crazy homemade clamp system is utilized
and here they are, ready for their strings. Jack's on the left, Olga's i upper center and Randy's on the right. I did not forget them, Randy chose not to have marker dots on the top of his fretboard, only on the side.
