So the bass I'll soon start building was to have an ABM roller bridge, 3566B, like this one, just in 6 and black. However, recently I read in a thread that it is quite heavy... So I started thinking about ABM's aluminium bridges Now the dilemma is the following: I wanted this bass to have the tone of my Corvette with a bit more brightness, clarity and growl, and all this in a lighter package, as my back is a bit weak. The body woods are already here, 1" swamp ash with 0.625" bubinga pommelé top (maybe a wenge veneer for aesthetics); also, the body will have a big electronics cavity and a chamber with similar dimensions to the el. cav. on the upper side, to reduce weight. However, I want the neck to be wenge. There's no substitute for it's tone, unfortunately. And as we all know, wenge is heavy. At least the upper horn is long - it goes to the 12th fret. Also, I'll try to get the new ultralight Gotoh tuning keys (GB350 Res-o-lite: 35,0 gramms each, almost half the weight) So what do you think I should do? A) Use the aluminium bridge, save some weight, and hope the balance will be ok with the long upper horn and light tuners (btw, how has the consensus changed on the tone of alu bridges since the last - about 2-years-old - thread?) - or - B) Use the heavier brass bridge, maybe it's over 200 gramms heavier, but it will be a better counterweight to the wenge-bubinga neck and ebony fingerboard. I'm open to other suggestions, as well (except for not using wenge ) Thanks!
