Modified bridge

Hello, I'm planning on entering this year's build challenge for the first time. I've already started designing and I want this one to be a multi scale fanned fret type thing. The one question I have is about the bridge, my scales are going to be 28'' and 25.5'' and I was wondering how to get that type of angle on a standard tele bridge, I've seen people use a lefty bridge to get the correct angle for the pickup, but that won't matter because I'm using a humbucker in the bridge. My idea was to use pickup mounting screws for the saddles. Any suggestions? Thanks.

If you are going to use a traditional bridge, I'd cut some steel and bend at the appropriate angle. Easy peasy to do.

I wish I could, but I'm 13 and have no equipment to do anything with steel and such

If you want to reinvent guitar parts, you are going to need time, patience, tools and materials.
