I am trying to find a drawing of a baroque guitar bridge ? I am familiar with a romantic guitar type bridge with pins and small saddle + moustache etc. I am familiar with a lute bridge tied and spaced via holes at the front side.
But I hear mention of two types of Baroque guitar bridge - lute style - and 'arched' - this latter is the confusing one ?
I am planning/drawing a baroque guitar ( 670 ) 5/6 course. I have sussed and read up on most of the issues. strings, nut, frets etc - but I need to sort out the bridge. Cannot find a decent drawing or a meaningful image ?
I have now found a handy pdf - by Sinier de Ridder, simple descriptions of all types of guitar bridge over the years - useful.
I see now the 'arch style' means a longer hole like and archway - for both strings of the course - nice idea - push the strings about a bit
