Carruthers reverse 5th string bass bridge
way back when, when 4 strings basses were being converted to 5, J. Carruthers had a bridge that put the extra string on backwards - IOW the tuner was on the bridge, not the headstock. IIRC, the headstock string retainer was replaced by a string anchor, so there was no need to drill a large hole in the headstock for the 5th tuner. Has anyone seen one or these lately?
