Subject: RE: why is a guitar bridge glued down?
Also consider that the fore and aft placement of the saddle is critical and it needs to be as precisely located as possible. If the bridge, which contains the saddle slot, is not firmly kept in position, it could creep away from its proper location and cause significant intonation problems. With an unglued bridge, the act of changing strings could very easily result in its moving.
