In that closeup bridge shot, once the string leaves the saddle towards the hole in the bridge, it appears that there is a break angle, ie resulting in string friction in the hole, ie wear.codedog wrote: ↑Mon Mar 13, 2023 7:36 pmWhat aspect of the design in particular made you wonder?Jay wrote: ↑Mon Mar 13, 2023 6:16 pmBeautiful, but I wonder about the longevity of that bridge designSlowy wrote: ↑Mon Mar 13, 2023 4:53 pm https://reverb.com/item/53225669-lowden ... 45-60-neck
I hate exchange rates. My dream Lowden in my chosen wood combination has now become stratospherically unaffordable.
The other thing that I wonder, is if a horizontal crack would develop between the 'end ball' holes, the string tension might just rip the top off that bridge section.
I am sure Mr Lowden's engineers have faith in it, but will it last 50 plus years?
