Lyle Bridge Repair
Dave brought me his Lyle 12 string to put bridge pins back in. It has a trapeze holding the strings and Dave wanted to go back to the original bridge pins. We soon discovered that the bridge was coming up at the back edge and decided that it would probably come off in the near future. If it did it would probably tear some of the top with it and make for a really difficult repair. It might pull some of the top wood from between the bridge and sound hole - requiring a significant top repair and refinish. So we decided to remove the bridge and put on a new one. Removal was not easy and the bridge pulled up a lot of the top wood.
