Urgent Hardware help

As a couple of you have seen i've been using an RG570 neck in my construction of an electric harp guitar, but i need some helping getting new hardware to match the dimensions of the RG570 neck.. i'm going for a fixed bridge in place of the original Lo-pro (sold that a while ago) Will this bridge match up to all the string spacing and such for the 570 neck. I do have to drill piezo wire holes and install graphtech piezo saddles still but that shouldn't be a problem.


for the harp strings i'm using novax individual bridges modified to accept graphtech ghosts saddles, although i'm not sure what style graphtech saddle i need to get for either the gotoh or the novax.. If anyone knows which saddles fit correctly of the top of your head please let me know. We are finishing the body construction faster than i had anticipated, so we'll be ready to install hardware pretty soon.

Oh and does anyone know where i can get custom length strings? The harp strings will be fairly long scale and i don't know any where to buy extra long guitar strings. I'm anticipating having to play with individual nuts to shorten the scale of each string as needed. It's going to be tuned standard EADGBE for the guitar side and for now, E F# G A B C D for the 7 harp strings. might change. Not sure.

Thanks again guys. I appreciate the help.. I'll post some pics once all done. Hopefully it all works out. This is very experimental for us, so we'll see.
