The bridge plate is laminated from spruce, palo escrito, and hard maple, and then coated with CA glue to toughen the surface against which the ball ends of the strings will bear. Palo escrito, for those who may not know, is a Mexican rosewood that is much lighter weight than other rosewoods. I used it to cap the X's, too, as you can see in these photos.
