    Hi,
    My english is not very good.so maybe a little fitting video might be a very good idea.
    i will buy this american conversion Bridge, but at the instruction seconed page , i don’t understand this paragraft .
    With the bridge flat, push it forward ( against the two outer bearing screws now fitted ) , position the drill so it is just touching the back edge of the inner holes .
    Sorry i don’t understand where is the forward? And if the holes align with the shim why are we pushing it? (i assume towards the neck.) maybe a vide might help. Thank you. İt sounds great but i don’t want to do something wrong. İ live in Cyprus not much guitar techs here, so i have to do it myself.

    Hi there, thank you,
    the bearing screws are 3.5mm diameter and the holes are 4mm , so by pushing the bridge forward ( onto the two outer bearing screws already fitted) and positionning the drill on the back edge of the four inner holes , you are simply making sure that the alignment of all the holes and screws will be accurate.

    Let me know if you need any further help
    kind regards

    Thank you, i understand now. With the American Conversion Bridge is the saddles come with the bridge? Or we have to order seperately ? Because i did not see any saddles on the online shop. Thank you for reply.

    Hello there,
    You need to order separately. Having said that if you can wait until November we will have an option to include improved steel nickel saddles. if you join our mailing list via here http://www.wudtone.com/hook-up-with-wudtone/ you will receive notification when they are ready.
    kind regards

    Will this conversion work on a new Classic Player Strat as well?

    hi there, yes no problem, just need to check the width of the saddles so to select the right string spacing option.
    let us know if you have anymore q’s
    kind regards
