I have a Euro 5 that I would play lots more if she didn't weigh so much. I know I can shave about half a pound by going to Ultralight tuners. Is there a bridge that will "work" without a serious mod to the bass? The curved body has a little "shelf" the the bridge sits on. Ideally, a MUCH lighter bridge would dump a pound or more.
I feel the same way about my MusicMan Sterling.
It's my favorite bass, but I play it the least amount because it's so heavy.
I have seriously considered having someone router out the back, but I'm afraid I'll regret it and cry myself to sleep.
