Today i decided to read as mush as i can find articles about floating bridge in classical guitars
I know this type of bridges in other instruments, even in Guitarrra Portuguesa but in this one is all bone made.
have some of you made this experience?
What was the final verdict?
I never have done this in classical guitar but i see some good points like for example less hard wood glued in the soundboard, in this case is not even glued, bad point, as it is a small piece i believe, please correct me if i'm wrong, that if the strings came from bellow the sound board, will produce extreme weight in the small bridge, is this a thing that can collapse the soundboard? Please see the link bellow.
In the Guitarra Portuguesa is a small area as well, but inside the structure is prepared for that pressure and the strings came from the back os the guitar what produces a mush less intense angle.
Well i just started today reading about this i believe i will spend some time until i decide to do some test as well.
Other thing that is in my mind, if this works why we do not see mush luthiers doing this???
