MIJ Tokais.... Metric or Imperial for bridge upgrade.

Post by goddardo » Fri Apr 12, 2019 5:55 am

So I'm looking to upgrade the wrapover Bridge on my 2002 MIJ Tokai LP junior. I've seen the bridge and matching studs I'd like to get but I'm getting conflicting information on whether I'd need a metric or imperial thread type to fit the existing body bushings on my Tokai.... I'm being told that MIJ would be imperial and MIC and MIK would be metric.... Please could anyone help me with this so I can get the correct bridge ordered... Cheers guys

Pretty sure 2002 MIJ would be metric. My 2000 MIJ TJ-60 was when i swapped out for a new Faber posts and tailpiece.

Metric, I ahve been experimenting with all sort of ABRs and tailpieces and all were metric size, you had to enlarge US size ABRs as Pigtail, for example. Gotoh stock bridge in quite good!

All of my MIJ Tokais were metric.
