I have used a Jig here from StewMac to locate the bridge and used dowels to pin it through the string pin holes for gluing . The Jig locates the bridge in relation to the nut / 12Th fret so you have the proper distance bridge to nut .
With the headstock I was trying to capture the " Arrow Head " Idea. The head stock being angled and the " Indian Arrow Head " Purple heart center .
Thanks For stopping by . Hope you enjoyed your Tour through my Hobby !
