Adjustable Bridge

I just watched a YouTube video that showed a classical guitar with an adjustable bridge. Essentially, all you do is slide the bridge as it’s made longer than needed. As you slide it, the action gets lower or higher. It got me thinking about the advantages of having that ability. I like a low action but I can get buzzes if I get heavy handed. Any commments on the pros or cons? I do recall seeing a photo of Segovia playing with such a bridge but never gave it much thought at the time as I didn’t like the looks. But…it would sure allow fine tuning of the action if needed.

You mean, move the saddle or the bridge?

I think it an ugly solution but certainly as advantages if your neck isn’t reinforced and changes with the humidity.
