This typically will require them to remove the stops to go that thin and most are reluctant to do this or will at best charge you for the time to remove and reinstall them .
Are you going long or short scale ?
It is a very rewarding thing to hear those first sounds .
Not sure what the scale is, I'm copying my takamine for the most part. Its an eg260c in wine red. You wouldn't happen to have a pdf for a bridge would you? Thats the only thing I'm lacking. I went to woodcraft today and found a nice piece of rosewood to make the bridge out of. I can copy the bridge on my Takamine but it would be nice to have a pdf to glue on it instead.
Thanks for the input on acoustics every little bit helps. After building some teles, the acoustic seems like climbing Mt Everest, doesn't it?!
I don't think people realize how easy an electric is until they try building an acoustic.
