    Hi, I have a badass guitar bridge that needs string notching. I know, this not specifically a bass question, but it could be useful for those who want to do this to their bass bridges. Does anyone have a link to a detailed description on how this procedure is done and also what tools are needed?? Where might these tools be available on the net? TIA

    Thank you for the research and the links. What I figured out from all of that is that for me to be able to properly notch a guitar and or a bass bridge that I will have to acquire at least 11 files to match all of the string diameters.

    Does anyone have a source for jeweler files?
