Another day, another “keeping myself busy” project!
I bought an ABR-1 bridge for my bullion gold SG. I like the look of an ABR-1 better than the modern “Nashville”. However, the posts that the Nashville sits on are thicker than those of the ABR-1, and of course the posts that come with the ABR-1 are too narrow to sit in the Nashville bushings! But, I’m not too worried - on the four or five modern Gibsons I have converted to ABR-1s, only one of them would not fit. The others either fit well right out of the package, or else were a bit tight, but were OK after I enlarged the holes with a small round file.
Also: I bought a used Lollar neck pickup for the Esquire build I am doing. Hmmm. I guess that means it ain’t gonna be an esquire after all! ;)
PS: your eyes are not deceiving you. That is indeed a giant shopping bag beside the road in photo #7!
