Turnbuckle Bolt as a Bridge (left-handed thread)

Turnbuckles come with two bolts. I have several that have eye-bolts, but other bolts are available. One of the bolts has left-handed threads. It works well as a bridge, since the angle of the threads lines up with the angle on the bridge. I've had problems with right-handed bolts where I need to files grooves in the spots where the strings should be to keep them in place.See More

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
My fingers are not nimble enough for six strings, but I can manage 3 strings. I built a dulcimer, and am able learn songs on that. I can then translate those songs to the guitar.
