The Gibson 3-point bridge: I don't recall that I ever had great trouble with it on my SG bass. My tech insisted that the bridge was fine as is, and he was right. But true to my nature, I had to mess with it. There's just something I have in my head about getting the best possible sound I can out of my bass. The first thing I did was remove the front screw and stack a rubber and steel washer under the front of the bridge, thus converting the bridge to 2-point. With this simple mod, I noticed that the bass felt more "solid." Afterward I got some nylon washers to extend the length of the strings, which worked all right, but not great. Later I purchased a Gibson mod bar off ebay, and this was probably the best thing I could have done. This extended the ball ends of my strings far enough that the windings didn't ride on the saddles any longer. Then I decided to use Rotosound 88s. Anyone who's used Rotosound 88s knows what huge honking strings they are. My tech even remarked how enormous they were and asked for the gauges as he filed a wider slot for my G string. I love these strings, but they're a pain in the ass to intonate, especially the E string. And I couldn't get things just right. On a whim, I decided to buy a Supertone 3-Point Bridge. I don't know why, I guess because everyone raves about how great it is opposed to the stock Gibson bridge. When I got the bridge, I was disappointed there was no manual or anything included that might explain the installation and usage of their bridge. But I'm a smart enough guy that I can figure it out myself, and I did. And then I was equally disappointed when I found I needed to cut the screw on my E string so it would intonate properly. This was appalling, considering the cost of the bridge. It's bad design plain and simple is what it is. But I did it, and fought like hell with the bridge, trying to make it work with my strings. I never could get those 88s intonated properly on it. Eventually I switched back to the rounds and rode with the Supertone for a while. But I was dissatisfied because I wasn't getting the same deep bass sound that I got with the 88s, so early this month I turned back to the stock bridge and had an idea: Let's thread those 88s through the nylon washers and then slide on the mod bar. So I did, and then put it on the bass. A little tweaking, and boom: Bass was intonated properly, and has never sounded better. A revelation, if you will. And now I have a Supertone bridge I don't really want. What a waste of money. Sorry for the long post. I just thought it'd be fun to share my experiences noodling around with a Gibson bridge. Does anyone else out there feel that the Supertone bridge isn't all it's cracked up to be?
