Help on finding a fixed bridge for custom RG,string spacing?

Hi there. Couple of quick questions.

A while ago i had a bash at making an RG body, it didnt turn out to bad, so i took apart my 550 and put the neck, electrics and PUP's in it thinking i could sell the body and bridge onwards (as this is a fixed bridge). Couple of things have cropped up, firstly both pots seem to now be damaged once there on my custom body, god knows how, but they both spin all the way round (not freely mind, takes a lot of force to turn them) i assume that these are screwed?

Also im after getting a cheap fixed bridge but there two things im unsure off, string spacing, and where abouts the bridge should be placed. I cant remember what the distance should be from the end of the neck and the bridge and what bridge to get as many seem to have differnt string spacing.

I know theres a lot of info on this site but it would be a lot more helpfull if people could try to help me out rather than me search.

Thanks a lot
