I've had my second hand DB for about 2 months now and several of you have commented rightly that the bridge is positioned way too high (up above the middle of the 'f' hole. I've lowered it to the correct position but I can now see why the previous owner placed it where he did, it's way too low and making the strings sit on the fingerboard. I know I probably need to buy an adustable bridge, but can I at least do some quick free remedial 'repair' to simply see if it at least sounds ok in the correct position and with the right string height? I had in mind strips of flexible plastic or card placed under the strings. Has anyone else had to resort to this sort of experimentation? Jon Ps. The bridge measures 17 centimeters from the body of the bass to the top (of the bridge) Is that standard?
