Hi, i'm building my first own electric guitar and for this, i want to used a fixed bridge. Its more easy to install and adjust. It.s also allows a better transmission of vibrations from the cords to the solidbody. I made some research because i want to have a good quality for this guitar parts. But it appears quickly to me that it's a expensive part of the electric guitar when you are looking for quality (hipshot, Babizs,...). Then a found the Tight End R fixed brige which seems to be good, it also have a good style but i didn't find reviews about this fixed bridge.. I just want to be sure that it's a good item before tu purchase one. does anyone know this item and can give me his opinion.about it. Thanks a lot in advance for your answers. Best regards,
Hi everyone. I've just registered and this is the first forum of this kind I'm a part of, nice to have a place to get started on guitar building. I have a question. I've been building a telecaster kind of guitar, but with standard hardware (not telecaster-y) including two humbuckers and a hardtail fixed bridge. When I made the neck pocket I realised it's not deep enough (should be 15 or so millimeters, and it's about 12), so the strings sit on all the frets and make no sound. Do you think it would be wise to add a neck angle by, say, gluing wood into the neck pocket? Or should I try something else? I didn't made the neck pocket per se, my guitar is made from three layers of wood, so I just cut the neck space on the top layer. Thanks in advance, hope to get into this kind of stuff.
