Couldn't agree more on the "ice" comment. Missed any major trouble this time around, but a few years ago we were out of electricity for over a week,
and a tree ripped the power line off of the house. Hope you are fairing a little better down south!
:) Cheers

Hey Gribb, how did that bridge compare height wise to the original? Maybe I missed it but did you fill in the old bridge rout?

Hi Jorg,

Yes, I filled in the bridge cavity with a piece of 1/4'' maple and it worked out about perfect. The screws for the saddles are extended pretty far, but it works out so there is no excess sticking out to gouge the palm of your hand.

You can line up the holes for the string-thru holes in the body, but in my case had to find a longer adjustment screw for one of the saddles to allow it to go forward enough to intonate properly.

IMO this works better than the original Ray bridge and I haven't noticed any loss of sustain. It's pretty rock solid.

-G

Well, I've decided to reuse the Ray bridge. The one I have is very nice.
If it ever fails, I'll fill the hole. I was just looking at the height difference between the bridges and wondered how yours was working out.

Thanks!!

I know Jorg is a fan, I meant to post the above in his CS350 thread but I'm sure Gribb won't mind my mistake :D

Hey Gribb, did you use the ground plate in yours? If so, did you use long shaft pots?
