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?
