I`ve got a vintage greco 1977 SGtype bass. It has got a 3point gibson bridge. Ive read a few posts regarding cutting holes in the bass. And I`ve considered doing that. some say it doesnt make any difference, but some say it does make a difference on a 3point.. most people advice bying a hipshot 3point replacement bridge. I dont want that.. why? It is UGLY! it doesnt fit the vintage look of the bass. furthermore, it is big, and I can no longer use the bridgecover wich looks awsome, is nice to rest my hand/fingers, and offers damping of the strings with a bit of foam. I`ve considered fitting the bass with a fendertype bridge.. anybody else have done that? it looks so much more "vintage" than the hipshot, and I can use the brigdecover. furthermore, because of the bridgecover it will look sort of like original anyways.. but the problem is that I now have three unused holes in my bass from the 3point.. so there is basically 3 alternativesd for getting better tone. 1) hipshot. dont want that. because of looks and no bridgecover 2) Fender bridge. I can use bridgecover. better tone. vintage looks. BUT 3 holes in my bass. will need filling and painting to look good. 3) cutting holes in the bass for stringthrough. don`T know if this helps a lot really.. I could really like som input on this, because I want my bass to offer best tone. It sounds good as it is, but everybody says the 3point is not so good, so I want to improve it.. for tone. Does anybody know of another good replacement for the bridge than hipshot, or fendertype? I would probably buy a hipshot If it only wasnt to big for the bridgecover..
