Hey guys..I've posted this before, but i didn't get a lot of responses.

I have a Peavey Raptor International series.

I want to change the bridge...Do i need to buy the same exact bridge? and is it easy to change it?

sorry im new at this.

Thanks

why do you want to change it?
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I actually had to put in another neck, the stock was messed up..The guy it got it from, didn't take care of it at all.

Could be a neck problem and not just a bridge problem.

just make sure the measurements add up...and from what you said it does sound like a neck problem. good luck!

You should get the stock neck, what's prolly happening is they put in a neck that is thicker than the original, so the frets are higher up and closer to the strings, since the fret board is higher up the bridge is not designed to compensate for the added height.

You need to buy the correct size neck and put it in, should solve all your problems, but at this point I would just buy a new guitar, necks are rather expensive.

so you think another bridge won't help?...i got the guitar for free..but paid $100 for the new neck and the labor they put into it.

Yeah, a good neck costs around $150 by itself. They prolly took a neck off a cheap starter guitar with the same neck pocket size and bolt design and bolted it up and hoped it worked.

Maybe, depends on what's wrong with the stock neck.

Ah well, I still only have my Squier, it's starting to have problems despite all the high end parts I've put on it, I think I wore it out.
