hi. would you mind taking a look at this thread? it regards finding a bridge for a 10-string (doubled 5) bass. http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=76482 as you can see, i've looked all over, e-mailed several people, and can't find what i need. i was wondering if you could offer some help on the subject. was the bridge for your zon 10-string custom made? if so, by whom? i know you're tight with hipshot, so i'm guessing it's them. thanks for any insight you can offer. addition on 3/8: do you use special gauges on this bass (non-standard sizes for the octaves)? some of the tunings you have listed for your zon 10 are pretty interesting; the main thing i'm excited about with this double course bass is the possibility of huge chords, so i'll be doing plenty of tuning to things other than octaves. what's the tuning range on the octave strings? obviously, the different gauges have different ranges. when tuning the pairs to something other than an octave, do you generally tune higher than an octave, or lower? i guess that's kind of a lot of questions; sorry for inundating you. feel free to not answer some stuff; i know you have a life.
