Recomended Cleaning Of Bridge

Discussion in 'Setup & Repair [DB]' started by contraman, Aug 30, 2003.


  1. Dear Lex Luthiers,

    I would like to know the best way to clean the bridge and maintain it in good condition.
     
  2. I think it's macho to have like a half inch of rosin and crap on your bridge, so it gets all green and nasty. :D
     
  3. Thanks for the........help?!:bassist: :bassist:
     
  4. hahah... no problem man! seriously though, a little denatured or rubbing alcohol should get any rosin build up off of the bridge, and that should be enough to keep it in good shape for a long time. I personally just wipe mine off every once in a while and it seems to do fine, but if you like to use a lot of rosin it might take more than that. Good luck1 :)
