Fitting a bridge to a 1935 Epiphone Olympic

My family and I recently moved into a house we renovated. Part of the renovation included building a shop for me to work on instruments.

It overlooks Kootenay Lake in British Columbia, and is a wonderful place to work.

I am putting a temporary bridge on a 1935 Epiphone Olympic archtop until I get an original one. This guitar model was made famous by David Rawlings who is an incredible guitarist and singer. He and Gillian Welch are 2 of my favorite musicians.

I refretted the guitar and can hardly wait to spank that plank!
