I am splitting a former thread as suggested and posting the relevant parts in these threads so here goes... I am an aspiring Luthier. I have taught myself how to do my own setups , fret leveling etc etc but I find myself in a pickle on a item on my Yamaha bass I am modding as a "learning" project. All setup and neck work has been done but I find myself put off by the flimsy stamped bridge on this bass. It actually looks flimsier than the on on the early 80's MiM Squire I am modding. On this end I was wondering if the hole spacing for the bridge is the same as a Fender. It LOOKs the same but I dont want to pull the bridge off the Squire to take detailed measurements. This is the bridge I am looking at: Bass Parts Resource :: Aftermarket Economy Bass Bridges BB-E4-C It seems like it should just drop in and the one I have on the Squire is awesome especially for the price. I emailed the vendor but as we all know they aren't the greatest at answering email. I dont have a problem plugging and redrilling a few holes but would rather not if possible. Id the screw spacing on the Yamaha TRBX174 the same as on a Squire? They appear to be the same but would like to be sure before ordering. Same number of screws and look to be in the same place. Any help would be great.
