Recessing a TOM bridge?

Recommended Posts

Install your neck. Set your bridge to its lowest height, and figure out how deep you have to recess it so that the strings are lying against the frets. Then you know that any adjustment up from there will give you clearance and you'll be able to adjust your action to the -amount- of clearance you want.

Or so I've heard. :D Makes sense to me. Been discussed many many times around these parts, so if you do a search you'll find more info.

Alternatively, use a tele-style-specific bridge. B) Remember that a TOM is 12" radius, so you'll either want to match the neck radius to that, or you'd better have some files for customizing the TOM's grooves.
