I have an old Harmony/Stella student model, solid wood (I think birch?). It has been refinished (not well), but I think it has potential. For starters, it is ladder braced and has a bit of a dip in front of the bridge. Has anyone ever put a Bridge Doc in one of these small body ladder braced guitars and gotten them to take x-tra light steel strings. I have silk&steel on their now, and it does not sound too good at all. My other thought is to replace the adjustable saddle bridge with one where the saddle actually makes contact with something other than 2 screws. This would seem to be a direct route to tone improvement. Even if it wont take steel strings with the Bridge Doc, I would think that it would improve tone with the silkys. Really just want to make a beach beater out of this. It's original look is long gone. Anyone ever strung these up with nylon and gotten good sounds?
