My first project: Custom JEM. help me!

Hello

I am building my custom guitar and I decided to make a JEM copy. This is the result:
















I need to buy a tremolo bridge. I don't want to install a floyd rose. I live in Spain and here, guitar parts are too expensive, so I will buy the tremolo in USA. This is my firt proyect and I would like to know if I can to buy whatever bridge or I have to attend for any measure.

Please, can you to recomend me any bridge??

Thank you and sorry for my english.

Deep.

Very nice work, keep us posted!

I'm not sure if I understand your question, but you could try getting an Ibanez Edge, Lo Pro Edge trem, or there are a variety of other trems that you could use for your project, eg Wilkinson, etc. , since you haven't routed the trem cavity yet.

good luck.

Thank you!

No, I don't want to install a floyd rose bridge. I would like to install a floating bridge.

http://www.universaljems.com/cart/bridgefloating.htm

The problem is that I don't know what floating bridge measure I must to choose or if I can to install whatever. My neck is an Ibanez RG550.

For example: (copied from universaljems)

- Gotoh Tremolo 1011-T, Black, With Hardware, 2-3/16" String Spacing.

- Gotoh Tremolo 1099T-W, Solid Steel Saddles, Chrome, W/Hardware, 2-1/8" Spacing..

Try this calculator:

This may then help you decide which string spacing to go with.
