bontempo Posted June 7, 2008 Report Share Posted June 7, 2008 Ok... new here and my first post. While not "scratch" building a guitar, I'm completing a L/H SG type. I bought the body and neck from an ebay supplier. The only documentation were the basics, 24 3/4 scale, Neck pocket is 2 1/4 in. wide. Nut is 1 5/8 in. wide and 2 1/4 in. at the base. Body is 1 1/4 thick. All of the routing had been done for the neck (set) and pups. That left me with the staining and finishing, which I've completed with great results and satisfaction. (green flame maple..killer!) I bought a tune-o-matic and stop bar style bridge. I had to dis-assemble the bridge and reverse the saddles for lefty use. I bought and attached a L/H graphtec nut. I've attached the neck using Titebond hide glue. Now here is my challenge. How do I center and position the bridge. Everything I've read so far addresses only the distance based on the scale, (24.801, as stewmac suggests) etc. I got one chance to drill and get this right .
