Metric, I ahve been experimenting with all sort of ABRs and tailpieces and all were metric size, you had to enlarge US size ABRs as Pigtail, for example. Gotoh stock bridge in quite good!

Hello Alan, I owned a 2001 LS70VF and it was urethane laquer, different from upper line LOve Rocks. It was a very nice guitar and ligth (3'8 kg.'2 pieces back).

Greetings.

You can get a Gator brown Lifton style with pink inside for much less and it works OK.
I just got one for my beloved 1981 ES-100 SB.

If Tokai says it then you are safe 100%.
Urethane is one thing and nitrocelulouse another, although they use the term all laquear for an old style nitro finish (it takes 3 and half moths to cure).
