I have read a few posts on replacing the bridge on Gitanes but still need some help.
I recently bought a DG250M and I like the guitar for the price. Only trouble is that it is very, very wet. It also sounds a bit too 'thick' for rhythm playing.
At the moment I am still using the strings that were supplied with the guitar and I am hoping that switching to Argentines will help it sound a little more authentic. I've also been told to try putting some leather or felt under the bridge to try and mitigate the sympathetic string vibration (at least a little). So my questions are:
1: Where exactly do I put the leather under the bridge? Do I place it under the contact points, which will higher the action, or do I just fill out the gap in the middle between the bridge and the guitar body?
2: How much is a replacement bridge likely to help with sympathetic string vibration?
3: I've read on here that people have stock bridges and fitted. Can I order a 'fitted' bridge for a stock dg250m or does it need to be fitted to my specific guitar?
Any advice greatly appreciated. Obviously I intend buying the bridge on this site, hence posting here!
