    Hah ha.. oh wow. That scratch plate was a good choice. Looking at that I think silver hardware is the go.

    Please call it Tiffany.

    I have to say that it looks cool, that white pearloid scratchplate contrasts well with the blue denim.

    Interesting how opportunities present themselves....

    I've hit a bit of a wall that I need to ponder.... install a NOS Fender '62 String-thru bridge plate or use a PBG non-string-thru plate as originally spec'd...

    Drilling the holes for the stings is the issue... not tearing the denim and finding a drill press with the required reach.

    I would strongly recommend not drilling into the denim - unless you glue or expoy it hard first. Even then I'd be very careful.

    What will likely happen is the threads will get caught up in the drill bit and it will grab and rotate the whole job very fast, thats if it doesn't try and tear the denim off first. Multiple strands of denim/cotton are very strong. Having worked with lathes and other fast spinning machinery a lot, the idea of that scares me.

    Yeah, it scares me too...A LOT. particularly as the denim isn't epoxied, it is still soft to touch ... I suppose could use a 1/4" hole punch to cut the denim first.

    I do like the idea of a string thru, and if it did get 'caught' I could re-do the denim. Down side is I went through a near on a full wheelie bin worth of denim to get these two pieces and I'm none too keen on doing that again...
