Well after putting if off for a week and not having owned an archtop for many many years I decided to adjust the bridge on my new Eastman 803ce. I was really afraid that after I started moving the bridge around I would open the door to all kinds of other problems, but I must say it went rather well. Should I be looking for other things after doing this ? I mean I have perfect harmonics at the 12th and also when fretted. No buzzing on any open or fretted strings and doesn't note off anywhere up the fretboard. Either this guitar really was put together and set up well or I just got lucky but for me this is a great guitar to start back into playing with.

Lacking more sophisticated information than your ears (or a tuner) can provide, there's nothing left for you to do but enjoy your work.

getting the bridge in the right place on an archtop
is not too difficult.

Off Topic a bit
I sometimes wonder why 'normal' acoustic guitar designs are so popular
when you can't move the bridge ??
For Ex
Try getting an average acoustic and tuning to open D (open E shape)
then play up the neck barre chords ....
ouch ..... out of whack eh ?

Anywhay glad you got it 'in' enjoy playing it up that neck
