Any ideas? Tom
warwick 5 string bridge's are 16.5mm. that's the narrowest i've seen.
Thanks they don't sell them seperately though do they?
Hey I have a Hipshot "A" narrow.It is like a normal one except the saddles touch each other side to side,(instead of being seperated by the rails of the baseplate).I dont have it in front of Me till tomarrow but, I will measure the string spacing and get back to You.It is brand new and i really don't have any use for it. Pm Me if this is what you need.
I am looking for one as well as per my post under "Bridge Material ?".
Any info greatly accepted.
How narrow? ABM's smaller width 5 string bridge will go down to 15mm, and their individuals will go down to 15mm. I'm not sure what Hipshot's singles will go down to.
TJ...I have this 3 way schaller on a 5vr converted from a 4 string "B" Neck Precision, it can go down to right at 16mm (or divide 2-17/32" by 4 to check my math). Its a nice bridge.
Google up Dillion bridges also, they have narrow 5vrs for conversion of Rics, where the necks are way narrow.
Wow ABM's web site sucks! No measurements small photos.
What specifically do you need? How narrow are you talking?
There are better pictures of ABM stuff at allparts.com.
I am asking the customer the same questions. Thanks .....t
Cool Is that about $75?
The Hipshot A-style bridges can come as narrow as .650" string spacing, which put the bridge at 2-1/2" from highest to lowest. That's as narrow as my Ibanez Soundgears and Schecters. They don't have it on their website as a selectable spacing, but they do make it that narrow. When I called Hipshot, they told me that you just have to ask for it, cuz they don't get many orders for it, but still make them. I'm having my buddy at gui****ed Center price it for me, and probably see him Wednesday to put in the order.
5-String Chrome bass bridge-2 1/4" string spacing
Find it at www.grguitars.com... click the "bass" link and scroll down, $24 bucks.
Hey there,E-mailed specs for the Hipshot.(17mm and under).
Kahler bridges can be adjusted to a bit narrower than 14 MM. They pop up regularly on Ebay, and can supposedly be purchased new at Kahler USA.
you can also get Kahler bridges through Warmoth. I think they still have stock, and they were cheap last time I looked
not on the site anymore......t
I'd ask anyway. They were closing them out, but there might be something left.
