    has anyone used these on their bass or had experience with em/copuld compare them with steinberger stuff.
  2. I suggest getting individual ABM headless tuners for your project:
    http://www.allparts.com/categories.php?cat_id=439&cat_name=4-STRING & SINGLE STRING
    (Scroll down to BB_3501-003, ABM Single String Bass Bridge with attached tuner, Black.)

    I have them on my Status Graphite 6 fretless headless and they are massively stable and reliable.


    I would avoid ordering anything "custom" from ABM, UNLESS you have a year to wait. Also, make sure that you have someone competent doing the ordering and managing the transaction since they are overseas.

    I have a ton of experience with these kinds of hybrid instruments. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help via e-mail at jay@grasstain.com. ;)

    I haven't, but their standard bridges are quality!

    I don't mean to derail the thread but...

    I ran across a headstock string retainer on E-bay which appears to fit existing tuning gear holes and incorporates a thumbscrew "vise" to secure the string. Needless to say, each clamp accommodates a single string. Just add a tuning bridge of some type and you're ready to go! Does anybody know who manufactures the aforementioned headstock clamps?
