    I can assume, but does anyone know whether the Hollowbody 594 has the "bridge block" construction design similar to the H2 where the top and bottom wood connects under the bridge only via a bridge block? Thank you!

    Yes, I seem to remember seeing a big honkin' bridge block in PS Friday at one point.

    Thanks, garrett. I might have to go back through and see if I can find that.

    Here's one where you can see the hole under the bridge pup:

    Thanks, what a great guitar! What i'm interested in is the wood underneath those bridge holes. I imagine there's a wood block underneath the bridge that connects to the back, but I can't see it. Does anyone have one of these to take a peak?

    I would think it would be similar construction. Block of Hog between the top & back. Sadly don’t have photo proof to back this up.

    ^ I think that is a pot, not a block of wood.

    You can see both a pot, the block, and the pickup wires through the f hole there.

    I'm sure the block has to be there to support the bridge. The anchors run deep.

    Here’s some pics of my HB2 and JA 15. I think you can see the hog block used to anchor the bridge stoptail (whether it is one or two piece).
