    I have an old tailpiece I wanted to use with a newer ABR 1 bridge..
    tIt seems that the string to string spacing on the tailpiece is a bit smaller (like around 2")
    the string to string spacing on the bridge is (2 1/8") whatever the standard "G" spacing is..
    should I use this tailpiece or scrap the Idea?
    I would like to use it as it was from ym first guitar and It's been with me for 25 plus years .. I would make my new build all that more personal.. :)
    obviously I can get a new one for just a few bucks soo...
