    I need to fit a new bridge on a Baroque bass and need to find a plain bridge blank. Can anyone direct me to a source? International Violin no longer carries them. Thanks, Tom

    I dunno about bridge blanks but I'd be happy to fix it for you.:eek: But seriously folks, other than Lemur my bud Eddie Maday has lots of experience in that field, he may be able to help. He's one of the good guys.

    Thanks Jeff. I should have bought those plain blanks when I saw them last year.

    Eddie Maday's basses look lovely, Jeff. Another link for my "favourites"

    Eddie comes from a line of "baymen" in the area[Long Island]. Billy Joel has sung about them. Baymen are simply folks that ply the waters for their living, fishing and clamming. Eddie still does that but his main gig is being a luthier. Years ago when I gave 4 weeks notice to my place of employ[for almost 13 years] I was fired on the spot. Eddie helped me out with sending me quite a bit of work and I won't soon pay off that debt.
