Just got my first Ibanez! Question about bridge
I just got my first Ibanez! It's a 1996 SF420 made in Korea that will be a new project guitar.
It currently has a Wilkinson/Gotoh wraparound bridge that I wanted to replace with something else for this build. String spacing of the Wilkinson is 1-15/16" (49.21mm) and the other bridges I am looking at have a slightly wider spacing: 2-1/16" (52.4mm).
The neck is a Viper neck, and the specs are below.
Width at nut
Width at last fret
Thickness at 1st fret
Thickness at 12th fret
So it looks like the slightly wider string spacing should fit the neck just fine, but knowing this information, do you think using the slightly wider spacing would work out just fine for me? It will definitely open up my possibilities as this is a more common measurement. The pole pieces in all of the bridges are the same, so no issues there.
