I'm fixing up an Aria Pro II TA-60 for a buddy, and he'd like to replace the bridge and tailpiece. Can anyone confirm what/ if any aftermarket tune-o-matic style hardware fit these? Gotoh, GoldenAge?

Tune-o-matic bridges are generally out out of my comfort zone / technical expertise, as I focus primarily on acoustics and Fender style builds and repair. I'm sure there are fitment issues I haven't even thought about yet.

Any advise greatly appreciated.

To my knowledge they come in either metric or standard. Aria proII would be a metric guitar. Main difference is stud spacing, SAE is 2-29/32" (74-74.5mm) and Metric is 82MM according to manufacturers specs.

Thanks Brian.

Looking at my chicken-scratch notes here, I had 2.800" center to center on the bridge, and 3.155" center to center on the tailpiece. Which doesn't line up with either the standard SAE or Metric. I'll take more precise measurements, and see if there is an obvious answer.
