Subject: RE: Best Guitar for UK folk club?
Ovations, along with Lowdens, are one of the exceptions insofar as they don’t have pin bridges; i.e. the strings are attached to the bridge itself rather than passing through the bridge, the top and the bridge plate beneath with bll end held in place by a bridgepin.

(For those who don’t know, the bridgepin doesn’t hold the string in place. The ball end should sit in a notch in the bridge plate and the pin simply stops it slipping out.)
