If we take the Greene photo as reference, and look at the 15th fret as a reference my calculations show that the bridge is either 3/32" longer than 25-1/2", or ...somewhere along the fretboard some of the frets were placed a whisker long. Without actually pinning the distance to the 12th & the nut it's impossible to know. I posted this speculation in another post somewhere, and the measurements there are actual and not from memory. If you look at the great work by Moriarty, Scarletfire & others you will see that these excellent Tiger's typically have the Kluson bridge overlapping the brass pickup ring slightly. This is because those guitars are actually build to 25.5".
