    Sorry for the question, but I'm a comoplete DB newbie. When looking at the fishman BP-100 pickup it says you need to flatten the bridge where the pickups make contact. I assume they're talking about the front of the bridge where you put the clips on..right inbetween the A and E, and D and G strings? I just don't feel too comfortable making physical alterations on my bass unless I'm 100% sure it won't do permanent harm. Thanks.

    Thanks Ed,
    I wasn't sure what it meant when it mentioned the front. I think I'm actually thinking about the top of the bridge as you mentioned, where the actual pickups will go. This already looks flat to me but I guess a little more won't hurt as long as I'm not digging a canal as you said. I'm just a little worried about doing anything to the thing since I'm so new to it...but I guess a little sanding on the top of the bridge will be fine.
