Archtop Bridge Fitting

CG: Archtop guitars sound their best when the bottom of the bridge is fit close and tight to the curvature of the top. In this picture I’m using a jig to align the bridge correctly while I sand the bottom of the bridge with the to fit the top. As you can see from the dust build up, I have achieved good contact on the ends of the bridge but still have some sanding to do to get it fit well in the middle.
