Hi friends,
I’ll probably be posting a mandolin (Fullerton Gloucester) for sale sometime in the next few days. Once I have a buyer and the time comes to pack it up, what do I do about the bridge? I’ve read of people lying the bridge flat for banjos, but I’m not sure if I should do the same with the mandolin. I do intend to put fresh strings on and detune them prior to packing, but just not sure what to do about the bridge.
If I do remove the bridge or lie it flat under the strings, should I mark proper placement with a pencil for the buyer?
Thanks in advance!

One thing I forgot to mention is that the mandolin will be in a gigbag. If that matters.

I bought (or rather traded for) a mandolin once and it arrived in a box inside its gig bag completely assembled and ready to play. I've had the same experience with several dulcimers and a ukulele as well.

I know, right? Madness! I’d never consider selling it if I wasn’t having a custom oval-holed made. But, I try not to keep duplicate instruments, and I also have my eye on a bouzouki upgrade so $$$ is needed.
