    I wanna make a Gibson style bass, but I wanna make it have a tailpiece and bridge just because that’s one of the things that screams Gibson to me.
    But I cant find them.
    Do they exist? If so, can someone toss a link below.
    Thank!

    447C0C28-EDEA-4A92-9C5B-793C7EECA17A.jpeg Gibson themselves did an LP bass with either a copy of a Warwick bridge & tailpiece or a Warwick sourced bridge & tailpiece which I really like 1) the feel of (having enjoyed the feel of a few Warwicks) 2) the look of and 3) the intonation wiggle room afforded by the longer throw as compared to the T-O-M.

    There is usually Warwick hardware available on eBay.

    Duesenberg also has bridges with separate tailstop. They even have them for five string basses
