    49443_732668. I bought the BABICZ FULL CONTACT BASS BRIDGE (5 string GOLD) for a custom made bass and "assumed" that the spacing was standard on my bass. Big mistake. While this bridge uses the FENDER standard string spacing, my bass is slightly smaller than that and the g string and b string sat too close to the neck edge for my comfort level. Really was a shame, because the SOUND of my bass opened up and didn't sound as compressed as it had sounded before. The bridge is, for all practical purposes, brand new. It cost me $200 for the bridge and I will sell it for $100 plus shipping (probably $5.00 priority mail). Of course it will have the mounting screws, directions, allen wrench for adjustment. Click on the link to see the specs and spacing info. 3/4" string spacing.

    In all seriousness though.. this is a great price on this bridge.. new or used.. I mean really... how much wear and tear can a bridge get.. BBG has this bridge for $188. I am looking at upgrading one of my basses and if this was black I would have snatched it up.

    You are correct on that. Of course, the bridge was only on my bass for less than 1 hour before I decided that it just was not a "match made in heaven" for my BOSSA bass that has narrower string spacings. So..there is NO wear and is the same as new.

    You could always put gold tuners on your bass and raise the entire level of your bass to 1st class. :) Just trying to be cute bump

    After scouring many websites for reviews, it seems that this bass guitar bridge is made of aluminum. I would have thought that it was a brass bridge, but reviewers state that it is aluminum.
