    Gold & cheap! What's the catch?

    Well, it's mostly junk. And it needs to leave my house.


    Let's start of at the top, here's a gold Schaller 5 string bridge in pretty good shape, missing mounting screws. One tiny knick and some dust, other than that it's nice $76 new at Warmoth. $30 shipped. Best offers? Trades?

    Now the ugly, this is the the bridge and tuners from a 1985 Tokai PJ bass. Basically this is a Japanese copy of pre CBS hardware. The tuners work fine but has orange peal bubbling of the gold plating. Good chance that's not real gold either ;)

    The bridge is a bit uglier and still works as badly as it did new, just like the real pre CBS stuff did. Tonally it's very nice and woody but the saddles move.

    Perfect set for a beater bass

    $20 shipped for the set.

    Edit:
    I found 5 new black screws for the bridge, I've added a full set of stainless steel screws for the tuners since some of the gold ones are a bit chewed up and I've found the gold neck bolt plate and 2 gold strap buttons. That's a lot of junk for 20 bucks.

    I also have this little Schaller bridge for the skinny string crowd. Also no screws. It's chrome, looks a bit gold in the picture.

    SOLD :)

    Hmmm, i'm making a T-bird like bass with the profile of a MM Sterling neck... Would any of those bridges fit do you reckon?

    The old Tokai would but it really needs to go on a crappy bass.

    Shipping would be well over the value too. I guess I should specify the included shipping is in the US.

    How much do you want for the guitar bridge?

    How's $20 shipped to IL? If I remember right it's the narrower Gibson style spacing so you might want to check the specs on the net somewhere. The roller saddles give you some flexibility.

    A Bergantino 1x12, would do it :)

    I don't have much in mind but a DVD seems about the same range. I could use a nice short speaker cable, What do you have?

    I have a dual 1/4" speaker cable that is very tough if you would like it. I make them out of heavy duty drop cord, or the regular black speaker cable stuff. I can do either. Let me know about it.

    That sounds fun... What's drop cord?

    If you make them and want to whip out a 4 footer of the heavy stuff I'll trade for that. Or if you have one built in the 3-6 foot range that would work too.

    Email or PM your address and I'l send it on it's way. USPS okay?

    Perfectly Cool!

    How's about this... I'll make you 2 cables. I'll put together one of each kind. I'll PM you my address.

    Hmmm, still no word from Radio Kaos 64 so the $20 pile of old gold hardware is still available. As is the 5 string bridge.

    I'm sorry! Your email made it's way into spam folder, and I just fished it out. I had no idea you could send emails through Talkbass, I thought it was just PM's! Anyways, I'll send the paypal as soon I can, probably within the hour. Is the stuff still for sale?

    Cool. I was worried you were eaten by wolves or something. It's still for sale and if you scroll up to the ad you'll see the pile of stuff has grown :)
