Bridges: Bart Veerman Mystery Wood Bridge

Submitted by jcking on 2/6/2020

Where Purchased: Bart's web site

Overall Comments

My goal was to have slightly wider string spacing and adjust the tone to moderate the high frequency bite on my Goodtime Americana. I had already switched to a Fiberskyn head and Rickard tailpiece, both of which made major progress toward the clawhammer sound I was seeking. Bart was easy to deal with and promptly sent the 5/8" untopped mystery wood bridge with 46mm spacing. It arrived meticulously packaged and I installed it easily.

My observations are that although the bridge is somewhat smaller than the factory bridge, there is plenty of volume and the notes seem "rounder" and more "civilized", seeming to lose their hard edges.  I am sufficiently pleased that I will likely order from Bart again when the time comes to replace this one.
