    What are some really nice, light bass bridges? I know about the Hipshot bridges made from aluminum which are pretty good, and am familiar with the Leo Quan Badass bridges (but the Badass II and V are somewhat large and heavy)

    specifically, a nice bridge for a 5 string bass?

    Why would you want something light? Doesn't that defeat the purpose?

    not necessarily light then i suppose...
  5. Try the high end Wilkinson Gotoh's. It will take some searching to find a dealer with pics but Trev Wilkinson builds these from aluminum and they are stellar bridges with features the even that dumb hipshots don't have like adjustable break angle over the saddle.
