Tremolo Mounting Screw Help

Recommended Posts

I have got a new tremolo for my guitar and the screw mounting hole spacing`s are different, would i be able to drill a few new holes and fit the tremolo? I would be able to get the first 4 screws in the original hole`s and have to drill holes for the 5th and 6th screws (5th=1mm and 6th=2mm off center) or would the 6th string be too close to the edge of the fretboard?

It’s very important to get things lined up properly. You should plug all of the holes, and drill new ones for all screws. If you are going to reuse any of the holes, start with the middle two and work your way from there. If you do that you will keep he strings centred over the pickups and the fret board.
