how to line up a schaller bridge
im finishing the end of my build and the bridge im using does not have a center screw instead it has 6.
most bridges have 5 screws andthe installation would go by screwing the middle down and stringing up the B and c string to align the rest of the screws. so with this bridge would i just mark the center and screw in one of the middle ones or is there a more efficient way of installing it?
Okay so i figured it out so I thought side write it here if other people wonder.
I took off the saddles and measured the center of the bridge and placed it where I wanted it then marked the screw holes. After that I measured the holes and made sure they were equidistant from the center line. Then tested it and the spacing was good for the neck. And just to let people know the bridge does not accommodate fodera .125 gauge b strings. The ball end part has too thick of winding to get into the spot to hold it down.
Thanks for the update-
I've been considering a 5 string version of this, and I like Fodera strings.
I've had a similar problem with some other 'B's, also.
Guess it'll work alright with tapers, but never know which strings sound best with any particular bass 'til they're tried and sure don't like to be confined by the bridge.
if you could live using a tapered string then i would go for it! this is the best bridge that ive used so far. the string spacing adjustment, height adjustment and intonation adj. are really easy to use and i like the sturdyness of the bridge. i even like it better than the fodera bridge i have on one of my other basses.
