An electric acoustic violin is a combination of an acoustic violin and an
electric system, and the electric system includes a pickup unit for
converting the vibrations of the strings to an electric signal; and a
hollow space is formed in the bridge for receiving the pickup unit so
that the vibrations are transferred from the strings through the bridge
to the pickup unit, whereby the pickup unit faithfully converts the
vibrations to the electric signal without any influence of the tension
exerted on the bridge by the strings.
