    I'm in the market for a new bridge that can accommodate .687" string spacing. I want to be able to use the string through holes already routed in my bass for that spacing. I know the hipshot A-style will work, but does anyone know of any other bridges that can work for string through .687" string spacing? Thanks for the input!

    Well that .687" spacing is 17.4498mm, so I would venture to think that any bridge that is 17.5mm spacing should work fine.

    Yes, I realize that... What other bridges besides the hipshot though make bridges with that string spacing with the string through option?

    A Hipshot A comes in that size.
    Great bridge too.

    Any high end bridge maker (Hipshot, ETS, Gotoh, Kahler, etc.) should have bridges available in those sizes. I'd recommend sending an email to whatever company is selling the bridge to verify.
