if i did something like this.. http://www.projectguitar.com/tut/tht2.htm
firstly is it fine keeping the locking nut at the headstock and using it?
obviously the new bridge won't be locking.
as far as i can see this would be sweet, no need for locking tuners. but there may be something subtle i'm missing?
like if a floyd guitar that is designed for certain string heights as opposed to a fixed bridge guitar etc
fspacing- the jem neck,pups and bridge are all Fspaced i assume..
are all nontrem and strat type bridges Fspaced? is it only really tunomatics etc that aren't? cos i don't see any Fspace labelling on bridges in online shops..
'sustain block' on bridges, these seem optional all the time, is it just a model with a big metal block that sits underneath like our edges etc?
i'm just after a bridge that sits and screws in on top so i don't think this would be what i'm going for
lastly i won't be using vibrato probably, but are there any specific reasons to not go with a vintage/strat style like this.. http://www.wdmusic.com/wilkinson_con...24862_prd1.htm
(that one has the sustain block thing i think, i would get the option without it)
..and to instead go something like this? http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Bridges,...s.html#details
thanks for your time guys
i'm not in the dark, just need some clarification
