    Re: Reverb to start collecting tax IDs

    Re: Tuning up a Traditional Brekke Bridge

    TLDR: I did it and it plays a lot easier for me!

    What I did:
    1. Bought a 4-40 die for $5. Cut threads as far up the post as I could go. Helped a little but I didn't think it was enough....

    Tuning up a Traditional Brekke Bridge
