Originally had a tek glide (6 screw), but body has already had the trem route slightly enlarged and has the posts for a two post trem installed, but it apparently then needed a neck shim to get the string height correct. it appears the shim is just another neck plate...

I used a Wilkinson 5+1 in my X195 which screwed straight in to the 6 original holes, but has yours still got the original holes or does it just have the 2 post holes? A Bendmaster Deluxe might fit?

the original holes are still there. 2 outside ones are filled, but can be redrilled...

In that case, Wilkinson 5+1 will see you right!
