Is there a difference in the placement of a vintage vs modern bridge as far as distance from the neck? For instance, I tried swapping a vintage bridge with the Gotoh modern on my Xaviere tele but I could not adjust the saddles far enough forward to compensate all the strings for flatness. The mounting and string through holes lined up perfectly but I just couldn't get it to compensate correctly.
Xaviere is the brand Guitar fetish sells online. I didn't think there was a difference as far as placement. Is there a specific number in inches from the neck that the bridge should be? If you were building from scratch how would you determine were to put the string through or mounting holes?
