    I just won the harmonica bridge off eBay. I may even have use for the fubared tailpiece... I kinda like it.

    I ordered a complete metric bridge just in case the harmonica posts are metric, as I need to get rid of this roller crap bridge on my strat...

    Why is the bridge angled the wrong way on the strat ?
    Previous owner left handed ?
    Also the bridge needs to be turned around so the string tension pushes the adjustment screws and rollers tight as possible to minimize buzz and rattle.

    Intonates perfectly with plenty of adjustment in either direction.

    bridge can face either have direction so why would I have the intonation screws facing the tension bar of the bigsby?

    Rattles happen when they are disassembled improperly and the retention wire or c clips are lost..

    I will need to change the bushings, the schaller is metric.

    strat just needs the radius set.
