From time to time an instrument may need a new bridge, however well cut and however good the quality of the wood. You can protect your bridge and increase it's longevity by looking after it properly so it is worth learning how to do this.
You may need a new bridge for the following reasons:
The feet don't fit exactly to the plate
The string height is not correct. This can be because the strings have started to dig into the bridge, or it could be because you have changed to a different brand of strings with a different diameter, or your string height is no longer comfortable for your hand of style of playing
You may want to change or improve your sound. A new bridge can have a huge impact on the sound of a stringed instrument
Your bridge may have started to warp. This could be due to extreme temperature changes, or because of excessive tuning putting pressure on the bridge, which if not corrected can make the bridge lean one way or the other and cause it to bend
The grooves in your bridge could have become too deep and taking more off the height of the bridge to compensate will just make it too low
The choice of bridge blank will affect the quality and longevity of the result. Choose the best quality you can afford.
