I have a classical guitar which at one point or another the bridge broke on.
The body its self is undamaged and the bridge was only affixed using two small bolts and glue.

I was wondering if it would be possible for someone with limited skill in this area to replace it.

Is the bridge broken or did it just come off?



The bridge split, I then removed it.

The hardest part of this repair is going to be getting a new bridge that is exactly like the old one. Chances are it's going to have to be made from scratch. If you feel up to that then actually gluing it onto your guitar is going to be pretty easy. Typically there are no screws or bolts in the bridge but because your bridge does have the bolts that is going t make everything a lot easier. You should be able to see the outline of the old bridge on your guitar top and the bolts are going to help you make sure everything lines up so you should be able to do that part by eye. So really, it's just matter of cleaning off the old glue, put some new glue on, put on the bridge, tighten the bolts a little, make sure everything still lines up, and put on a couple clamps. You will need some king of block on the inside of the guitar to help distribute clamping pressure across the top and that block will need grooves in it for the braces to lock into but other than that the job is pretty streight forward.
