    I'm starting to get all my parts together to build a new bass. I've got my MM JBass body and will be getting a schaller 463 bridge any day. the body has no holes drilled for any bridge, just ground hole near were the bridge will be. I'm not expecting any specific instructions. Does anyone have or know the measurements of the holes for a schaller 463 to a Jazz bass? Thanks

    Go here and use the Stew Mac fret calculator.

    Pick bass, type in the number of frets and the scale length. Then you will see they have positions for the screw holes Schaller Bridges (same as the Gotoh they list), which they list as 43.235" from the nut.
