I recently got a new bridge put on my stonebridge mandolin, cause the one on there when I bought it was so wide that it I thought it might be muting the strings somewhat.
The sound is much better now. The problem is, Three sides of the bridge base are flush with the top, while on the E string side facing the tailpeice, It is visibly not. I can fit a piece of paper underneath it on that part. I've started to get some occasional buzzing as well and wondered if this might be the reason.
I tried to put one of these on myself once, and had to let a proffesional fix it when he remarked that it wasnt set as well as it could be, so I know it's not easy, but should'nt it be exactly flush when done well?, or is it not always possible. hate to send it off again, but my guess is, It's worth it, it could be done better. I'd appreciate an informed opinion. sorry, no pics. I'm not familiar with the uploading thing yet.
