Building bridge and base-plate from raw stock - there's something you don't see every day. I'm impressed.

Wow. Nice work. Did you copy the Venus bridge you had?

Seriously cool progress with brass saddle business.

I'm curious as well...is the Squier Venus XII bridge pretty much based in dimensions on the Fender Electric XII?

The Venus bridge is exactly the same as the xii bridge except it is missing one mounting screw. As for the homemade bridge, it is copied off of vintage xii bridge dimensions. The block, string retainer, and string tree will be 3D printed. A guy on OSG is building me this but I'm not sure if I should say who. They don't want to make any more lol.

New update! Yes, it has been a while. Body is done and I just got the neck back from Rowyco. Another fantastic job. A brand new looking neck from the 60's. Crazy. Next step is to have the body painted and to find a righty set of tuners. Then it's ready to be assembled. Just bought a pair of black pickup covers. The white are not staying lol.
