  1. Just wondering why the bass bar is on the bass side and the soundpost on the treble side of the bridge. What acoustic reason is there for this arrangement given that the top and bottom plates are effectively symmetrical across the bouts. Only difference is where the upper and lower strings lie, and tension (force on the bridge should be effectively the same on both sides). Has anyone ever tried switching them while leaving the string arrangement as usual (as opposed to making an instrument for left-handed bowing, with upper string on left, lower string on right, and switching the bass bar and sound post positions accordingly, or rather leaving the sound post and bass bar as normal but simply changing the string arrangement)?
