I read often that the G string should be aproximately 5.5 mm above the end of the fretboard and the E string 3.5 mm. Do you think this is a useless rule? In my violin I find the E string is too low (3.5 mm) compared to the other strings, and I am planning on buying a blank bridge and fit it myself in a way that the distance between each string and the fingerboard is going to be exactly the same. What do you guys think?
