Basically what I'm trying to determine is if I replace an entire '52 trapeze assembly and replace it with a modern light weight stop tail assembly (it's a conversion ) what the weight difference would be.
If the aluminum bridge/studs etc would weigh meaningfully less than the entire trapeze .
Hoping to drop a few ounces from the overall weight of the guitar.
As a lover of GTs who believes the heavens weep every time one is irreversibly altered, may I suggest looking into the weight of the Mojoaxe CCT replacement TP before drilling? I don't know, but it looks like it might save you a little.
