Description

I purchased the Pinless Bridge Drilling Jig to replace my own shop-built, non-adjustable, used and worn and needing to be recreated drilling jig. I even had a specific custom requirement that ELEVATE was willing to accommodate for a very reasonable fee. The tool is well thought out and works exactly as described, ensuring the accurate placement and drilling of the string holes.

~Christopher Cozad, Cozad Guitars

I’m a big fan of pinless bridges for acoustic guitars and my first few attempts were less successful than I was aiming for because of tool limitations… not to mention wasting good material. No matter how careful I was, how well I thought I had set up my bridge blank in the vise, adjust for cutting angle, the results were not satisfactory. Then I got the ELEVATE Pinless Bridge Drilling Jig. It was a dramatic improvement in process – after a few practice runs, I was able to dial in exactly the angle,  entry and  exit location of the string path for my desired break angle and my pinless bridges turn out as I design them to. The ELEVATE jig is a wonderful tool and one of my favorites!
