Can't help with the bridge questions.

Next build project on the go, Gear4Music LA 12 String Strat type, it was cheaper than the Telecaster model but I figured the with Strat type body it was easier to experiment with different pick ups, I'm thinking of starting with 2 x  Humbuckers or maybe P90s, tuners will be replaced with Wilkinson EZ-LOC units as they work perfectly in the Telecaster I built, I am probably going to cut my own bone nut, don't think I'll be able to do anything with the bridge so I'll have to go with it for now.

Trial fit to make sure the important bits fit and line up ok before I start on the proper work, sacrificed the crappy strings supplied but managed to get it roughly set up at least to play at the nut end.  Tuners are rubbish and very rough but then I knew they would be, they strings were a bit of a challenge as they were all bundled together with no indication of what was what, I had to measure the gauge of each string and referencing them against a proprietary brand.

Also changed the bridge on my previous build, as close as I'm going to get without either spending well over £100 or converting to a string through body set up.

Cool beans! Dig that spalted top on the tele. I have an acoustic with a spalted ash top.
