1  To make the RetroFit you remove the strings - plastic nut - guitar saddles - plastic fretboard.

2  Remove the Screws and save them from the metal piece under the saddles - The plate is Now your string receiver.

3  Move the metal piece back to the edge of the end of the guitar. Blue Tape it to the edge to hold it in place.

4  Use your tape measure to place the New Nut and Bridge temporarily - use the new fretboard to help place the nut.

5  Make sure the Bridge is in front of the 3  screws at the back of the guitar not on top of them.

6  Blue tape everything for temporary alignment. Tweak all of this until it lays out nicely.

7  Mark where the Bridge hold down holes are going to go through the metal plate and into the wood below.

8  Remove the metal plate and drill holes through it on a separate area so not to drill into the guitar.

9  Return the metal plate and attach it to the guitar with the 3 little screws and 2 in the front. 

10 Use 2 screws to fill the holes in front of the metal plate.

11 Use your tape measure to place the nut and bridge at 22.5" - Blue tape both.

Make sure the fretboard fits in front of the metal pickguard plate or     slip it under the plate a little.

Measure multiple times before drilling.

13 Make sure the little ground wire is under the metal plate you moved back. The plate is your string receiver.

14 Fill the holes from the plastic fretboard with chalk - putty  - spackle - toothpicks - whatever.
