I have spent many many hours on arriving at these two pictures.

I'm probably famous for bitching about the incorrect bridge spacing on original Jazzmasters. You have to move the strings almost into the height screw holes to have them over the neck let alone over the pole pieces. I have fixed my original 1960 Jazzmaster, dated September 1960, the month that Walk Don't Run was on the charts.

So there.

The American Professional bridge is a happy bridge. 52mm spacing and like $80 new? I use these all the time now.
