The Gibson Mustache Bridge is a very decorative bridge that Gibson used on several of their guitar models including the J-200 Jumbo, J45 and J50. The bridge resembles a mustache shape with the scrolls on the 2 ends of the bridge. Also, there is MOP inlay that additionally decorates this beautiful bridge.
The bridge edge has a fillet edge of about 2.5mm and the bridge pins form an arc on the bottom of the bridge. The plan here features a compensated saddle slot. Also, it should be noted that the original bridge was bolted to the top. This is not necessary as the adhesive will easily resist the string forces.
