I'm getting a Starfire 8-string bass in a trade in a couple days and I'm thinking I might do some work on it. It's one of those cheap ebay ones with the wooden bridge, here's a pic: First off I hate hollow bodys, so I may just take the neck and maybe the pickups if they're decent and put them on a new body. Couple questions. 1) Source for a proper metal 8-string bridge? (and nut, if needed) 2) Chances that standard 4 string P/J pickups are going to sound ok with the 8 string? I have an SX P/J bass right now that I could swap the neck on. Other advice? I'm mostly expecting this to be a fun toy, but with some mild tendinitis in the left wrist, decent playability would be good.
