    I think your time would be better spent learning how to communicate.

    Benjamin,

    What I think you're asking is how to locate the bridge. If the bridge has adjustable saddles, (like a regular electric bridge), set the saddles about to the middle of their adjustment. Then, measure thirty inches from the nut to where the saddles are... Forget about measuring to the front or to the back of the bridge, as these measurements aren't accurate for scale length. If you want, I can scan a picture of what I'm saying and e-mail it to you.

    HTH,

    BTW Turock, not everybody speaks English as their primary language :cool:

    I realize that, and therefore I checked his profile before I made my post.

    My point is... I don't believe that very many people are going to take the time to reply if they aren't sure they understand the question.

    Benji, remembering a few other cases.....I suggest you take your time, next time you post.
    We don't want to be rude, or in any way disregarding,,,,we want to understand, and to help where ever we can.
    OK, I'm non-anglo by birth and life, so I will have even harder than most of us, but please, mate...
    Next time(s), do it in plain english and with some thought on the message you actually want to communicate. please?

    Yeah, girlfriend coming over, and yet it's still like EVERY one of his other posts.

    Excuses, excuses, excuses...I hope nobody believes that's the reason! First it was deafness, then bad typing, then bad keyboard, then girlfriend...
     
  10. Been my experience that deaf people tend to type better (and faster) than people who can hear.

    Of course, my experience is limited to two fantastic women, but they type better than I do, and their grammar is better.

  11. I, too, am much frustrated by Benjamins lack of communication skills. I've contacted him on the forum, by private message, and even edited one of his posts for clarity. I have done all I can to get through. Nothing has helped.

    But this thread is now way too off the subject to be useful to anyone and I am closing it for just that reason.
