If you are changing the bridge,then change the bushes at the same time,because some are 6mm and some are 8mm diameter thread.Sometimes if you change the bushes they might be on the smaller size,but that is a easy fix.

To goodykenny
The spacing of the bridge will be different,as the measurements are imperial as will the size of the bushes,which means you will have to fill and re-drill the mounting holes,otherwise get a metric bridge,from GOTOH,TONE PROS,or who ever.

wow i don't think i want to tackle this. the bridge and stop tail piece that come with my chibson work quite nicely i was just wanting to use the hardware left over on my studio lp. It is the only thing i didn't use building my chibson.
thank you
just play what you hear in your head, others may like it too.
