With correct string gauge, is it possible to tune the Viper-201B in A standard?

I need to find a replacement TOM bridge. The original has been damaged. One of the retaining washers on the screws for saddle intonation scale length got damaged and doesn't hold the saddle position. Looking at replacement TOMs it's apparent there are many variations on them. Can anyone tell me which TOM bridge would be a drop in replacement to abstain from trial and error returns.


thank you very much.

What type of strings should I use for this one? I normally use 0.10_0.56... What would you recommend guys? 

Carl N.

If you're used to 10-56 I would just stay with those, everyone has their own preference for string gauges and brands, keep in mind anytime you do any string gauge changes or tuning changes you may need to setup your instrument again.
