Hi All.
How difficult would it be to replace a bridge on these? They was epoxied on, right?
Would the epoxy they used back then be hard to heat, and take off without messing up the top?
Thanks, Wyatt

Ditto with Moody. My experience has been to heat the bridge, and slowly & carefully work a thin sheet of steel, like a pancake spatula, under the bridge, trying to avoid digging into the soundboard. That epoxy is pretty stubborn.
