Although rarely thought of by acoustic guitar players, the bridge plate, located inside the guitar, under the bridge, is one of the most important parts of an acoustic guitar. Typically made of a hard wood such as maple or rosewood, the bridge plate’s job is to prevent the ball ends of the strings from damaging the delicate guitar top, or even puling through the top and lifting the bridge. Over time even the toughest bridge plates become worn, and require repair or replacement.
Patch bridge plate – $15.00 per patch
(custom cut patches fitted to each damaged string position)
If done precisely, patching a bridge plate is a fantastic preventative repair. by carefully removing only the damaged portions of the bridge plate & replacing the material with exact fitting plugs, and recutting the string slot, guitar owners can aviod the expensive and risky proposition of having the bridge plate removed & replaced. when installed correctly, bridge plate patches can be replaced indefinitely as they become worn.
