If this works I'll post up details shortly after buying a few more of these bridges... :D


Send me the detalis of the bridge if you can please.
I have three guitars here that could do with the same treatment.
Cheers


Soon- let me check to be sure it's a workable option- everything looked good when I ordered it, but haven't done much more than open it & take quick pics since receiving it. Looks like the screw holes are all far away from the stock holes, at the very least.

No, no- the bridge is different, the cheap was the same!

Yay, it only took me a year to post updates! :D

:roll:

New bridge (top-load Fender Bullet bridge, black, ~$8 from E-Bay) is finally in place, strung up to test, and all seems to be pretty good. Now I just gotta get to cleaning up the gunky/funky MMK45s (+ trim rings), and wirin' it up. Then it's just minor tweaks, and we're very happy. :)

More pics! New Mini-Grovers fit PERFECTLY in place of the old tuners. New graphite string trees from Stew Mac, I think. Truss rod cover will need to be trimmed slightly to accommodate the new bone nut (the original brass nut had been hacked, and I wasn't a fan anyway). These pics also illustrate the finish variations- the front of the headstock is original glossy, the back & fretboard are a slightly sanded matte finish, the back of the neck is bare.
