RickBlacker Posted March 20, 2009 Report Share Posted March 20, 2009 (edited) Hi all... A little history here. Bought this existing body, it's a san dimas style. I bought the neck off ebay. I've ensured that the scale is correct. Here are my issues. 1) I screwd up the alignment with the bridge posts. They are uneven. One is forward from the other. 2) There is no room to pull up on the bridge (wammy goes down only - cant pull up more than a 1/16" inch or so) 3) I want to move the posts back Here are two pictures the picture of the bad alignment. Yes, I screwed up. I knew better, I eyeballed it rather than taking an accurate measurements or using a jig to ensure that I was perfectly lined up between the two posts.... Here you can see how the alignment is screwed up here as well as how I have no room for the block to move. Here you can see how far back my saddles are for intonation. The low E string is as far back as I could set it. Not good I would suspect. Here, you can see under the bridge how much room I have left to move the bridge back. My thought is that I could move it back about 1/4" and still maintain scale with the saddles. This would move the bridge block further away from the body and allow more room to pull up on the trem. Any thoughts? Suggestions? Edited March 20, 2009 by RickBlacker Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
