My Dean acoustic-electric Performer EA (back row, right) is having a problem. The bottom edge of the bridge is lifting away from the surface of the guitar. From what I’ve read this is a common problem, caused by either heat/humidity or too much string tension. I was considering just fixing it myself, bought myself a new set of extra-light strings and some super glue, and was all ready to do it myself… and I realized that this is my baby and if I screw it up and hurt him I will be very unhappy. So I need advice. The bottom corner of the bridge (the bottom point of that archy-triangle, you can see in the pic) is up about an eighth to a quarter of an inch off of the guitar surface. I have a pretty clear view of the kinda glue-y unfinished wood underneath. It’s basically on the bass end, so I figured I could just take off the 2 or 3 lowest strings, glue that sucker down and hold it for a good while, then re-string. But I don’t want to mess it up.
So, is this something I can do myself, or am I likely to permanently damage my baby boy? Do I really need to hie myself to a professional, and if so, how much is it likely to cost me and how long would I be axe-less? I’m living at school at the moment and am not only poor but a good distance from any good guitar shops, but I want to fix this before it gets any worse.
