  • Baggs Vio bridge too thick?

    Got my baggs vio pickup installed last week. My fiddle sounds great plugged in! But the sound acoustically has changed quite a bit. It's just not as punchy as it used to be. I note that the new bridge that came with the pickup is a little bit thicker than the old one, and I've read that can dramatically effect the sound. Can I get a luthier to shave the bridge down a little, without damaging the piezo element?

    Hey Squid,
    The bridge that we provide is intended to be fitted to the instrument by a Luthier. So it can be thinned slightly or shortened from the top in order to work best with your instrument.

    Over-thinning the bridge can cause the bridge to warp over time, but it shouldn't damage the pickup.
