GaryDolman Posted August 22, 2005 Report Share Posted August 22, 2005 Quote "from the nut to the 12th fret is 12.75", as it is from the 12th fret to the bridge. that's how they get the 25.5 inch scale. if you were to leave the bridge where it is, the intonation would be screwey, and it'd never play really in tune. " I am about to route out the pickup cavities on my first build. I have the neck cavity routed and the neck temp. taped in postion. According to the quote above from a previous thread the 12.75" from the 12th fret to the bridge gives you the 25.5" scale. I am using a premade bridge plate with a humbucker. Is the bridge considered to be the saddles? I penciled my cutouts on the body and I only have 2 3/4" center to center between the two humbuckers. It does not look right...
