    Hello All.
    I am building an ES 335 semi hollow body kit. I need to locate the bridge pins... Can you tell me the dimensions from nut to bridge pin, treble and bass side please? I need to get those right on as you know. Thanks so much.

    Sincerely,
    Rich

    Rich-

    I can't give you a straight simple answer, but I can suggest how I would lay it out.

    Measure your fingerboard from the nut (side closest to the frets) to the 12th fret. Double that to get the scale.

    I'm assuming a tune-a-matic bridge. Adjust the saddle position so each saddle is at the center of its range. Place your bridge pins so that the saddle line is the scale length from the nut.

    Thank you All for your help and assistance... I am now settled that I will have the bridge and stop bar located just right.

    Sincerely,
    Rich
