When we go to buy replacement bridges the post centers are listed as 74mm. However, my Chibson and Epi Les Paul bridge post centers are 73.65mm. Davesintexas also confirms all of his Chibsons are 73.65mm Doesn't seem like a lot of difference, but it was enough to require me to slightly modify my Wilkinson roller bridge by enlarging the holes slightly.
The various videos I see where replacement bridges are a "drop in" leave me scratching my head. Are the specs on those bridges so loose they allow the slight variation, or is everyone else getting a guitar with true 74mm spacing???
