If anyone has used one of these in their builds how did you attach the bridge to the box? Did you glue it? Screw it? Would like to know the best option before attach it to the box thank you.

Great forum BTW.

I drilled a slightly oversized hole for the wire and left the bridge floating to allow for intonation adjustments with different tunings and string gauges .

AND that's what I was thinking of doing! Cool. Thank you!

Hi, I have not used these bridges as I make my own, but the fitting is the same.

As Korrigan says, it's a floating bridge for use with a tailpiece, as there is no provision for attaching strings to it.

Taff

You'd be surprised Taff but there are folks that glue down floating bridges thinking that intonation is a "set it and forget it" thing like the Ronco Rotisserie.  :D

lol AND that's how I was instructed when I made my first CBG. I havn't done that since but it was the first time using this style piezo / bridge pickup. Thanks again everyone!
