I got a deal on a used Tele, only to find out it has 2-3/16 bridge spacing, which I think is too great. I would like to swap it out for a 2-1/16 bridge. Does anyone have experience with this? Problems I expect to encounter are:
1. String thru holes. Will I need to fill and drill?
2. Bridge mounting. Are bridges available with the same mounting points?
3. Finish. When I pull the bridge, does the finish tend to pull with it?
I'm sure there are other considerations I haven't thought of. If it leads to replacing the nut too, that's OK.
