Thread Name: Best Guitar for UK folk club?
Subject: RE: Best Guitar for UK folk club?
My Crafter Mandolin, plastic bowl-back from approx 2000
has a bridge that anchors the strings;
passing through from front to back.
I can't remember if the bridge is just glued to the top,
or pinned as well.
But string tension started lifting it off not too long after I got it..
Of course I didn't notice until I think after guarantee ran out...

I never enjoyed playing it anyway, sounded crap...
So replaced it with a solid body mando for gigs.
Haven't even bothered looking for it for about 15 years..
It's in the house somewhere...
