GFS have a lot of decent looking bridges, but I assume they'll be too big for the bridge spacing on that body

Finally got the body today!

There's a tiny chip in the paint, which I already knew about since the seller had disclosed it. The interesting thing is, you can see that under the blue/green there is ...

Body seems to be held up by customs for some reason. They've had it for 10 days, no idea why. Hopefully it will get here soon!

In the mean time, I found a Schaller bass bridge in my parts bin. It l ...

Do they make 30" scale 5 string basses with a low B? I'm curious to know if a low B string would work on a shortscale bass. Anybody ever tried? Is the scale length too short to have enough tensio ...

Why would you not just use black covers? It looks great btw!
