    Thanks!

    Could you do me one more favor?
    Measure from the middle of the screw holes to the top edge of the plate?

    which edge do you mean for the top? the edge closest to the pickups or the edge closest to the rear strap pin?

    *edit*
    for the HMV, from center screw hole to neck side edge is 1-1/2" and 11/16" to rear strap pin edge.
    for the pre-'08 bridge is 1-1/4" to neck side edge and 5/16" to rear strap pin edge.
