received my guitar in the post


1989 flying v, 67 reissue, set neck one piece solid mahogany body



EMG J.H pickups

gotoh sgl510z-p1HAPM tuners, black with AO1 buttons

gotoh 510FB bridge

gotoh 510FA stop tail

strings Ernie ball cobalt 10-46


have not built a guitar up before and doing the first fit out to dial it in before repaint have run into something the bridge has scribe marks on the saddles (were the string groves should be) but are just that JUST SCRIBE MARKS so the strings are not located at all.... my question is is it normal to receive a bridge like this do you usually have to file your own string groves in like you would a nut blank??????????????


love the feel of this thing can't wait to finish the test fit-out
