Bridge repair

I also glued the bridge back onto the Nelson today. Once the surfaces weres cleaned up and matched, I just needed to glue it back in. In order to position the bridge correctly on the top, I drilled 2 little pilot holes in the saddle slot and through the top. This way, all stays in place. There is a large piece of non-stick teflon in the guitar and under the bridge plate, which allows me to clamp it all down firmly, whithout any damage to the top wood.

And once that was done. I had to fix the crack in the bridge. Sorry, but I can't tell you how this is done...
