I just recieved my first Warmoth order, a carved top LP. I ordered Gotoh Stop & Tuno bridge routings, Gotoh Tune-O-Matic Bridge and Gotoh Stop Tail Piece. Now I'm trying to install bridge, but the studs wont fit in the holes. The holes for the bridge and tail piece are about 10.4mm, and the studs are 11mm. Have I ordered wrong parts for these routings?

Does "Gotoh Stop & Tuno" mean Gotoh Tune-O-Matic bridge and Gotoh Stop Tail Piece anyway?  :help:

The studs are not supposed to just slide in.  They should be tight.  You may need to lightly sand the holes to make the studs fit.  There have been several posted about installing the studs, with options ranging from pressing them in to "litely" tapping them in with a hammer.

You'll want to be able to lightly tap them in, not big swings with a hammer. If you had the body finished there is some finish lipped down inside the hole that will need to be sanded out.
