Bridge for Dean

  1. Hey, what's going TBers? Well I've been working on a Dean Edge fretless 4 string and came along some problems. First, well to let you know that I'm stripping, sanding, and staining the body to a natural color and need advice on a new bridge to match the golden honey pecan stain. Anyone with the bass should know what the neck looks like, I'm trying to achieve the same gloss. It looks like a polyurethane but with a little matte look to it. Those who have this bass know what it looks like.
    I was thinking about just using the black bridge but I'd like something with more mass and sustain but in the color of gold or chrome, just don't know which. Aesthetically I'd like it to look nice. Also anyone know where I can find wooden knobs and prices on the net that match split rotaters? As for pick up covers, any wooden covers that match humbucker designs out there?
    Or do you think adding more wooden features to the bass would be too much. This is my first bass that I'm working on and well as much as anyone I'd like to make it look beautiful. Should I go the the features or keep basic. Anyone ever been in my boat before?
