Looking for old Yamaha parts
I just posted an add saying that I was looking for Yamaha parts in the Wanted-Accessories, but I thought I might see if this forum could help, too.
I have a Yamaha 1980 or 1981 BB1000S that some (I'll not use the language I'd like to) idiot tried to convert to a 5 string. They lost the original tuners and the original bridge.
I'd really like to find a set of the original tuners and the original bridge. I've seen a few tuners around that might work, but the bridge.....yeesh. To make matters worse, the body on this one was finished stripped under the bridge, and it looks like only the original bridge will cover that.
I'm not looking to sell it- especially as "original" - but I would like to get it closer to its original glory. It's a fantastic sounding instrument, and I could really use a P/J in my arsenal. If anyone knows of a source for these, I'd appreciate having that info passed along.
I don't believe I've ever seen any BB bass parts anywhere.
I know people change/changed the tuners out but it's a rare thing to find a set. The bridges even more so. Remember - you're talking about parts that are 30+ years old.
All you can do is keep scrounging ebay and hope for the best.
