Bass Bridge Problem

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by b-monkey, Jul 19, 2004.

  1. hey guys, major dilemma, my friend has a little old Korean made bass, looks like a les paul and he wants to sell it to me, the problem is that, like a les paul style guitar it has a tune-o-matic bridge. this bridge is bassicaly a piece of brass held above the body, therefore no raising/ lowering the action is possible and not setting of the intonation is possible, what should i do? i was thinking of buying a new bridge but couldnt find any on the net (maybe you have sources that i dont?) or just tearing (or gently pulling) the frets out and going from there, compensating for intonation at the bridge with intonation at the "fret" with my finger, if you know what i mean.


    p.s. i heart TB, have for a long time
    p.s.s. im also a noob
