2005palehorse Posted December 6, 2010 Report Share Posted December 6, 2010 Hi from Kentucky. My first project of combining a fender scale neck to a LP body turned out "below" expectations but the bugs are still being dealt with (pics below). http://s1099.photobucket.com/albums/g395/2005palehorse Now I'm gonna try something similiar with an explorer body + Fender scale neck. I know the radious of the fender neck differs from Gibson and since I want to use a GOTOH style bridge, whats gonna matter most: Use a Schaller and adjust string width to match the Fender scale neck Use an aftermarket brand (small posts) that allows saddle adjustment Based on what folks say here, thats what I'll depend on for the bridge. The Schaller would allow me to adjust string width and not worry that the strings will be out-of-tolerance to neck edge. The aftermarket GOTOH bridge would let me set string height to meet the Fender radious. Whats the better choice? Thanks.....Tom Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
