OK all...did my best search-fu and came up with some info mostly related to Warwicks and Gibsons but would like to know if there might be other ideas/options out there or anyone that cured their Conklin of neck dive.
I have a Conklin GT7 with a custom body made from really light "dragonwood". While the bass is crazy light, the wenge/purpleheart neck is always wanting to point at the ground.
I love the feel of the neck/bass and want to play it more but can't really do more than 30mins trying to hold the neck up without it making my wrist sore later afterwards
I have an Ibby BTB 6er that balances like a beauty but weighs noticibly more and doesn't have the buttery smooth feel of the wenge neck on the Conklin. If only there were a way to blend both basses, it would be my ultimate workhorse
Is there a cure for neck dive aside from relocating the strap button??? I have a wide strap and ultralight tuners already installed. Is there a super heavy 7-string bridge out there? Would this even help?
Thanks in advance,
