OK Ok Ok Ok After looking and reading and looking some more and wrtting Mike Pecanic, I decided I got to have one of these compensated tail pieces. Then I noticed they don't look like they come predrilled to connect the tail piece to the bass. I also like the theory behind the Pecanic tailpiece connecting strap?/Rope?/Wire? ???(not sure what to call it. I wanted to be brave and do the work myself. It didn't seem like a big deal unitl a saw some pictuers of the tail pieces with no holes drilled. Can anyone tell me how to drill the holes? Is there right way or a wrong way? Should I leave this to a luthier? I just moved and I don't really know any luthiers in my area. I wanted to save myself a few bucks. I can just see myself showing up at a some luthiers shop with the parts in hand saying hey mister can you put this on my bass. Any advice would be appreciated.
