I'm putting my first partscaster together from "never-before-used" parts. I've changed out necks, bridges, pickups, etc......but this is the first time NOTHING has been fitted first. The body I'm using does have pickup and control plate routing, (this IS a Telecaster, of course) but no bridge or string-through pre-drilled holes. I am using a Wilkinson top-load bridge, so string-through doesn't matter. Where I'm a little hesitant, is the exact location for the bridge. After thinking it over, I'm considering mounting the neck (which hasn't arrived from Warmoth yet) and then measuring off the nut for string length, (to saddles) using actual cotton string to determine "E" string spacing (both E strings) on neck, and then screwing down bridge. Another issue is that I'm using a "left-handed" bridge, so the bridge pickup is slanted differently, and I'm gonna have to route some on the body for the pickup, but I can deal with that. And yes.....I changed out the compensated brass saddles for right-handed ones. So, my question is the "order of operation" on the neck and bridge mounting. Am I doing this right? Or am I overlooking something? Thanks for suggestions.
