    Starting a build and have seen some high mass bridges coming out from Fender but noone ever mentions if they fit under traditional bridge covers.Anyone have a nonstock bridge under your cover ?:help:

    I just got one of the no branding bridge plates from china and wanted to share that they are 1/4' taller than a branded fender one. China one is 1" Fender is 3/4" which may work with some bridges

    I just removed a high mass bridge from a used PJ I bought because it WOULD'NT fit under the bridge cover (this isn't strictly true, I could have moved the HMB forward a half inch and then it would have fit but; it also raised the action so much I just went back to stock.)
