I'm fitting a vintage style strat bridge to a body with no pre-drilled holes. The theory is to measure the neck pocket width, mark the halfway point, then follow the line to the bridge hole and mark the halfway point there. Any tips on how best to do this?
The other method that occurred to me is to hook the bridge up to the trem claw and actually re-string the guitar, but without screwing the bridge down, and getting it lined up like that to get the pencil marks for the holes in the right place.
Any wisdom appreciated. I paid a fair whack for the body and don't want to screw it up!
