i am quite happy with the stock bridge of my rickenbacker 1977 4001, the tail doesnt lift and sustain and sound are great. the only thing that bothers me is that i can't pick it in the palm mute way like i do it on my precision basses... which is an issue for me cause thats how i play 50% of the time. i have read about modifying the stock bridge but nothing really detailed. is there a way for me to keep the stock bridge and be able to palm mute? i would have already ordered a hipshot bridge but there again seems to be the "wobble" issue... looks like every option is some sort of compromise :/
What is the "wobble" issue, i've had a 2 customers change over to the hipshot ric bridge (1 4003 and 1 4001), but no indication of "wobble"
