Schaller 496... Off center?
I just got all the hardware for my bass and I got a Schaller 496 5 string. And it's extremely off center. The G string hangs off the fretboard. Any fix to this besides doweling the old holes and drilling new ones?
Depends what bridge you're replacing and the hole pattern. Looking at the 496, the pattern is not centered to start with:
You'll need to re-position and drill, baby, drill fit if that's the case.
Edit: the roller bridge saddles offer some lateral compensation but it may not be nearly enough.
Yeah, the saddles don't offer nearly enough to compensate. I can roll the G all the way towards the middle and it's still sitting on the edge of the fretboard. Well damn, I wasn't planning on doing this, but I guess I have to redrill
