Hey all,

I have a 2000 LB75 that could use a new bridge (it's become quite corroded over the years). I've been trying to determine string spacing (my measuring is not quite accurate). I've read everything from 16mm to 16.5mm to 17mm. It appears Hipshot doesn't make a B style bridge any smaller than 17mm.

Could someone give me some accurate information? Much appreciated!

17 or 17.5mm should be the correct string spacing, unless it's got the optional wide asymmetrical neck, which would then require a 19mm spacing.

Carvin used a slightly modified B-style bridge, as the standard B style is not string-through body setup.
