    You won't gain anything by doing this. Save your money.

    It's MUCH harder to do a string though body than to drill new bridge mounting holes.

    To do a string though, you have to have a drill press, and getting the ferrules on the back in a straight row is difficult. Then you have to drill through the body straight and to the bridge holes, and get them all lined up!

    We use a small milling machine to do this job.
