Most of you are probably aware of this.All of the the pre-Fender Gretschs had bridges to fingerboard mismatches(fingerboards were 9 1/2 and bridges were 12).Gotta be real careful and use a radius gauge.If you're good with a ruler in 64ths you can check with that also. The Best, Ty M.

Here´s how to measure the curvature of the fretboard to find out which Tru-Arc bridge to choose.

Tim has instructions on how to describe what you need. Apparently he has researched his guitars pretty thoroughly and has radii on file. Having said that, the template looks usable but it requires some user ability and not all of us can cut a straight line or follow a curve.

Amen, to that one,as it takes some skill(even if you cut it perfect,you gotta know what to look for when using)to use any tool.If you do make a gauge from the template,make it out of a plastic or a very stiff material. The Best, Ty M.
