5 string bridge with tight spacing?
I was wondering if anybody could point me in the right direction. I'm looking to mod a $20 precision bass that I bought, and I want to turn it into a 5 string.
Basically, I'm looking for a bridge that won't break the bank, but is also reliable. I've been looking at the mods that member Ric5 has done, and that is what I am going for, but I'd rather not put a $70 kahler bridge on a bass that I only paid $20 for.
I know wilkinson did the 4+1 bass bridge in the '80s, but the only one I've come across was heavily used and was way too pricy.
I've considered ordering some of those really cheap single string bridges off of ebay, but I have no way to verify that they can do the tight string spacing I'm looking for.
I know some people will say that this mod is probably not worth the money, but I'm not planning on sinking much money into this, and I already have all of the pieces for the mod (minus the bridge). Just looking for suggestions on a good cheap bridge, or basically any bridge that would work.
