Okay, I was looking for bridges today for a guitar build (my first build), in particular, hardtail ones. on a hell of a lot of them, it said the string spacing was 10.5, and there I was thinking I knew about this topic, when that came up. I thought that this couldn't be right, so I measured my Ibanez (I know its a trem style, but I wanted to see if the bridge was too big, even to a trem) and the measurement I got from e to e was 52mm. this seemed strange to me, especially since trems tend to have bigger spacing to hardtail. I worked out that the total difference from e to e on this bridge I was thinking of getting was 63mm (10.5X6=63), which is ridiculously wide. what have I done wrong?
