j. pierce Posted April 15, 2008 Report Share Posted April 15, 2008 I've a got a cheapo import solid body twelve string. It's got a standard TOM style bridge, with the saddles double notched. A long while back when I got it, I planned to put one of the TOM style 12-string bridges with individual saddles on it - Allparts used to sell one. I balked at the price at the time, as it was quite a bit of money for such a cheap guitar. Well, I've since potted the pickups so you can play at volumes above "2", and got the fretwork respectable and the setup decent enough that the thing is playable up the whole neck, and now the little intonation problems are starting to bug me. It's mostly usable, but I'd really like to get it spot on - I figure I'll drop the cash on the bridge, and put it on a proper DIY build in the future to make the cost worth it. Only thing is - it's not listed at Allparts anymore, and doesn't show up on eBay (which isn't a surpise as I'm sure all the eBay sales of it where mostly Allparts resellers) I'm just not finding it anywhere anymore. So long story short, anyone seen anything similar? I'm not afraid of plugging and redrilling post holes, but I'd like something close to TOM string spacing on it now. I figure I can rig something up with a fender-style bridge and a shim under the bridge to get the string height right for the angled set neck, but I'd prefer something like the style it's got now. Is there perhaps a Rickenbacker-style retrofit I can make work here? .j Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
