This might be a little left field for kit thinking but at the bottom of a Christmas ale, I found something to wondering about. What would happen if the saddle protruded through the bridge and soundboard and rested on the bridge plate? If there was a snug fit, wouldn’t this mean that there was more … “vibration”… through the sound board.
Maybe this has been tried before and it is most likely a question for Ken, John and those that have more knowledge of such things. Maybe it dampens the vibration…Maybe the strings pulling forward on the extreme saddle height would cause too much stress.
Food for thought? What do you think?
