Hey TDPRIers, One of my early musical heroes is Johnny Thunders. I remember hearing the LAMF album by the Heartbreakers when I was a teenager and thinking, 'damn, that's the guitarist I want to be!'. Of course I had no idea how the last fifteen years of his life went until later. So, I've been thinking of building a guitar with similar guts (but different looks) to Johnny's. He had a few but the most iconic one was his TV Yellow LP Jr. In the early days, this one had a plain, non-compensated wraparound bridge. Those were made of aluminum. I had a look online but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of ready-made options out there. The MojoAxe compensated bridge looks nice enough, but there's no way I'm shedding $130 plus shipping for a piece of aluminum. It got me thinking - there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of difference between a bog-standard TOM tailpiece and those old units, apart from the two intonation set screws at the posts. Drilling two holes and tapping them is not the hardest job out there. Has anyone here done that before? Is there something I'm completely missing? The Gotoh aluminum tailpiece seems to be a good candidate. The technical drawing on Gotho's website states that the top has a 9.8" radius, which is close enough to 9.5" (that's roughly a 0.0016" difference in height for the middle strings). Intonation obviously won't be perfect, but if Johnny didn't care, who cares?
