So I just got an Aspen Artist ,which is posted in the "Other Matsumoku Guitars" section. I wanted to restore her in gold and cream pickups, but I am having a HELL of a time finding the correct bridge piece. The bridge piece I have is spaced 10mm between strings, however, all the bridges I can find are spaced at 10.4mm between strings. Where can I find one that is spaced 10mm?

The only other guitar I have a 10mm spacing is my Aria PE60s. All other ones are 10.4mm
Much thanks...

To my knowledge that is rather rare as a spare.
Point in case being that to alter a given guitar ONE step usualy doesn´t present a problem and if nothing else it is a quick n dirty solution to get her going again.
10.4 can be had basicaly everywhere.

Take my "dragonstrat" for instance. I believe she´s supposed to be 10.4. Previous owner had swapped for a 11.4 for a US model strat. I changed that for a 10.8 Gotoh and it works flawless-on contrast to the 11.4 that pushed the string overboard IMO. Was still playable with the 11.4 though-admitted.

hey man, thanks for the response, much appreciated, as long as the strings don't come off the fretboard, I guess it shouldn't really matter
