Re: Questions about old Gibson A4s
Do you mean the bridge top has split or the mandolin top has a split at the foot of the bridge? Two different animals there..Any top crack can be cleated..I always replace those old one piece bridges with a nice cumberland acoustic bridge..More wood touching the top and spreading the stress and I always get a better sound, tone and volume..and..I use j-75's with no problems..
