B5 Tele install help???
on: January 10, 2012, 16:46

Good morning,

New to the forum and this is my first post. I tried searching but came up with nothing. I figured I'd come to the source and ask the Bigsby guru's.

What I trying to do is this:

I am starting with a top loader style telecaster body that has not beed drilled for any holes except the neck mounting holes. I have a B5 and a mustang bridge. I want to forgo the tele bridge plate and mount the bridge directly to the body leaving the bridge pickup exposed.

I am having a hard time figuring out a way to find the bridge placement that doesn't involve buying an extra bridge to grind the posts off of. I have no problem finding the 25.5 scale its the placement of the post or thimble holes in relation to the nut that is holding me back from finishing this mutant.

any ideas or help would be very much appreciated.

be excellent to each other


The wife and I live in Woodstock, Illinois with our 3 year old daughter where we slowly churn out vintage style guitars finished in nitrocellulose lacquer but with more modern options in terms of pickups and controls.
