Hello! My first-ever order arrived today. I had ordered some wood items and they are GORGEOUS! Smooth, perfectly flat!, and the woods themselves - with each one I pulled out, I just kept saying, WOW!, *WOW*!!!, over and over.  And thank you so much for the beautiful piece of East Indian Rosewood - it was described as "2nd grade" I believe, and I asked for a reddish color if possible, and I think this piece is absolutely stunning! These really exceeded my expectations! Thank you!"

Bridge Plate

BridgeplatePlatesPadsFor reinforcing the bridge area, Maple or Rosewood bridge plates are used on steel string guitars underneath the soundboard, as illustrated. For classical guitars a bridge pad is often used, which adds stability and increases stiffness across the grain. Usually there is enough material left from the soundboard to make this pad, but should you run short we have made them available here.

Bridge “plates” are used on steel string guitars, bridge pads (made of top wood) are used on classical guitars. Most classicals require the 12” size.
