I have a '96/'97 Carvin LB76F (F for Fretless) bass, which came with the Black & Gold Wilkinson bridge. It looks nice, but being that my bass is fretless, I don't feel it's giving my strings the best "Traction" on the fingerboard unless I raise it up a bit, or run a Bar Over the Strings & Under the Intonation screws. (I'll get a picture) I noticed that in 1998 Carvin went with the Hipshot bridges. Has anyone A / B -ed these 2 bridges? Any comments or opinions as to which is better? Are they interchangable?
