Epi 339 - making a right hand, left handed

Post by matthew a » Sun Jul 07, 2019 1:44 pm

Can you anyone point to some good resources on drilling holes in semi-acoustic bodies?

I actually remember seeing a blog where someone flipped a 335 years back but can’t seem to find it.

The bridge isn’t far off centre, so I’m going to leave it for now as it intimates ok with a new nut. Seen a cool little bridge bracket/widget that would allow me to move each side forward/back a few mm if I need.

Yes, any tips, stories & pictures of drilling (filling) holes on these types of thing would be most welcome.

Relocating a Tuneomatic Bridge

This might be the widget you're talking about. This way you don't have to drill or fill any holes.

Yep, that’s the bridge thingy! Still need to drill holes to move the controls. Might re-spray while I’m at it as well. Don’t really like the yellow body.
