As to string saddle spacing, yes it can be varied using different sized shims. This of course would require a saddle lock screw through the side rail to keep the shims from sliding out.
The pics are of a 20-MM, 0.7874 inches, string space bridge. Standard Fender spacing is 3/4 in., 0.7500 in. A difference of 0.0374 in. If I were to put Fender saddle pieces in the 20-MM baseplate I could use this difference, or gap, to move the saddle pieces sideways. I could then use different size shims, in between the saddles, to achieve the specific desired string spacing.
The pictures were taken with a borrowed H.P. digital camera, downloaded to my computer, uploaded to a site called picture trail, then copied and pasted to my AB home page. I'm working on some better photos, please bear with me.
As for the rest of you, lighten up man. It's not like I killed someone's dog. I certainly don't take MYSELF that seriously, heck, I watch Pro Wrestling.
Thanks Matt, I look forward to hearing from you again. Take care.
