Default Bridge Shaping

The final steps in the build process are underway.

Here Larry shapes the top of the bridge, bringing it to its final height and giving it a nice arched contour.

The bridge before final shaping. Note the rectangular shape.

Let the shaping begin...

The basic contour is established. The corners need to be brought into profile and the surface fine sanded.

The final shaping is done the good ol' fashion way.

The bridge height is checked to the plain of the fretboard.
