Bridge option...

  1. Hi everyone. I am getting real sick of neck dive and I do like the look of headless basses (from the neck up, I can't stand the Stienberger body style). My question is this I am thinking long and hard about getting a custom bass from Dave Pushic and am trying to decide if I should maybe go headless. If I did go headless is there any bridge I could get that would allow me to use my normal strings (D'Addario EXL170-5) without having to use the double ball adapter which I have heard is unreliable or will I need to switch to a brand which makes double ball strings ? Also do they make double ball strings which are 35" scale because all the ones I have seen are for use on the shortened Steinbergers.

    Thanks for your help, any comments and links would be apreciated.
