    Hey just to make sure my measurements are ok....
    The T-bird nut is 1.73 inches. (roughly 1 11/16 inches, a little less)

    Found a plastic 5-string nut that is 1 11/16 inches
    http://www.allparts.com/Plastic-Slotted-Bass-Nuts-p/bn-2211-023.htm

    Measured the neck at GC, it tapers down to its bottom to about 2 1/4 inches.

    So I should be able to do this (neck wise and string spacing) if I can find a bridge that has a total string space of around 2 1/4 inches....right? I want to get this right, eh?

    Comments, suggestions?
