    What's up with the bridge angle and the holes in front of the bridge?
    Stray capacitance drains.

    You're a drain on my stray capacitance.

    Outrageous!
    One recommendation. Pick up a extra Hagstrum bridge saddle. Take a file, dremmel tool or sandpaper and take down the sharp knief edge on the outside corner of the saddle. This will save you much pain and occasional bleeding if your Thunderbird becomes your main Axe! Keep the unmodified saddle around for taking pictures of your baby.
