Here's something interesting I found while peeking inside my Knutsen harp guitar.  Apparently someone was keen on making sure the bridge stayed attached to the top - either Knutsen or the person who made some other modifications (like replacing the saddle with a flush piece of wood).

There's a total of four hunks of wood there (the two large ones and two tucked underneath them in the center).  They are held in place with two bolts and a screw.  The bridge itself is pretty substantial to begin with:

When I get around to restoring it, I'll have a better idea of what exactly is going on, but I thought I'd share this in case anyone wants to incorporate it into their next build.

Wow, talk about BRUTAL. It's hard to imagine that being original work, but you never know.. The back braces look to be of the same age and shape.

I especially like the screw going through the brace. Wow.
