RG421 project

Just scored a Rg421 body, now I need a bridge. I would like to use the same mounting holes, will a tightend bridge line up? Or do I have to buy an original? I'd like to mount a Gibraltar plus, but I think some of the original mounting holes will show, and I'd rather not fill and have to repaint.

Question Re: RG421 project

Is there anybody out there? Really? No one? No one's got a sug.? No one's got a clue? I thought this was the "definitive" Ibanez go-to site for questions... Wow!... I think,... I may be on the wrong chat site. Sorry to be a bother. I think I will go and google myself now.... Moving on...

Re: RG421 project

You're asking a difficult question that most people wont know the answer to, then getting upset when you dont get a timely response? -.-

Gibraltar plus has a special routing, no good, lots of work. The gibraltar standard may fit...

Re: RG421 project

My mistake, didn' realize Ibanez doesn't have that many hardtails. Thanks for the response, but for a minute(or a day)there, I thought I was in the twilight zone. Anywho, so for this post to NOT be totally useless, here's part of my Samurai build, work in progress...
