    Greetings - new to this site but looking forward to it :)
    I just got a B301 off Ebay in good condition, but for a
    few things, not being very familiar with Guild basses
    (done lots of work on Fender-oid types) I thought I would ask.
    This one is missing a bridge part - the adj wheel that
    is in the front of the bridge (bridge rides on two big
    honking screws and a little front adjuster) Anybody know
    of a shop that may have one in the odds and sods pile?

    Also - I was surprised by how "low" the frets are on this
    bass! Like they have been seriously dressed. The guy said
    it was in storage most of its life - do they start low on Guilds
    or did I get a high mileage axe?

    I like the sound of the single coil pickup but the hum is a
    real drag...Is there anything that fits these without cutting
    them up? Thanks for any insights :confused:
