So, if the whole thing is set up right, like how I want it forever (or until I get a new bridge), then there really shouldn't be a problem with filing the bridge posts down, right? I think that's what I'm going to do. I think the plastic cap would still be an annoyance.

im thinking about putting new tuners on, ho do you guys think some gotoh 510s would look? im debating that or something a little more traditional looking. Also, is the sharp angle over the nut going to affect the tuning/staying in tune? because if it is, then i may want to fix that before i pay for nice new tuners.

My BC Rich Virgo has some almost equally sharp angles. Doesn't matter, it stays in tune well.

Good pen work, must have taken an age, but worth it. Looking good.
Well done.

Thanks guys! So I have a question, the low strings on this guy are sounding a little bit thud-ey and overpowering. Where could that be coming from? The nut slots are a little deep, i had to slot it myself, so maybe the strings are binding?

Maybe try backing the pickups away from the strings on the bass side.
