    Ok I just got a new lull and I hated the string spacing! it must be .787 because I have a fender spacing .750 in my drawer and I put that on and it was much better! Now one problem is I have to put the strings as close together as possible even with the .750 to get the exact feel I like....now I am getting another lull in the next few weeks...so I am going to have to order another bridge.....if I get the .718 are the mounting holes the same like the .787 and .750 were? I guess I could get another .750 and move all the saddles close together but I figured since I like the strings closer I might as well get the closer spacing one.

    One of the benefits of buying a bass like a Lull new is that they will give you some serious support love.

    I was just told by a custom place that every hipshot bridge the mounting holes are thee same as the string spacing....so every bridge is different mounting holes....thats messed up cuz the lull i had you can see its bigger then the .750 I have in my drawer yet it mounted right on to it....and the one that was on there was too big and the .750 was perfect.

    I just used my micrometer too and the lull is .787 and the one in my draw is .750 and the 750 lines up perfect for mounting.

    That is correct, and that's what is shown in their diagrams.

    This is what I was referring to earlier. It seems we posted at the same time, causing some confusion.
