what bugs me about those bridges is the fact that if you changed string guages from something light to something heavy(with 4 wound strings) the guitar would not intonate at all because the compensation on that bridge is designed for 3 wound and 3 solid strings.

i`dont think i`ll ever use one, fair enough i only use 10`s(3w & 3s) but thats not the point.

Probably not getting many answers because you just need to research, read, and most importantly, think it through.

When I was trying to decide, it ended up seeming to me like the wraparound bridge would have been a good option if the intonation were more adjustable. The Wilkinson one linked to above was almost a winner for me, but in the end it seemed more flexible for me to go with TOM and string-through. If you use the Jr-style bridge, it seems to me that you'd have to account for a lot of factors in your design.

Obviously it's a fine choice though... aren't LP Jr's good guitars? :D
