  1. I intend to make my own 6 str frettless, and I need complete specifications about ABM bridge (dimensions) in order to begin with work.
    Thanks folks! :hyper:

    Better, buy your bridge before you start the project.

    this would be more appropriate in setup than basses, so away it goes.
  7. Stellar advice here Bassphile!

    And, if you are going to be doing your own bridge, you could take that bridge and the digital calipers you have on your desk, and take all of the measurements off of the original.

    I gotta say though, that unless you are doing this as an excersize in machining, you are going top be wasting a lot of time and money and the results aren't likely to be the same. Especially when you can order a real bridge from ABM for less than it takes to make one. It would be more productive to put your research and machining time into one of your own designs. Think of it, the pride of showing off something new and original as opposed to having everyone constantly compare your work to the original.
