    I posted this also in the luthier's corner, but think maybe I'd get a quicker answer here.

    I'm looking to put together a parts caster - tele body, but with a Strat trem. I'd like to mimic a Music Man Axis in concept, so my neck will be: 1 5/8 nut, 2 3/16 (standard strat) heel, and 25.5 length. My question is that I'm not sure what to look for as far as the trem specs go - meaning do I need one with certain spacing? What should I make sure it has for this spec? I don't care for vintage style 6 screw I prefer the 2 post modern.

    Would like to go with either Fender or Gotoh. Links would be appreciated.

    Thanks!
