    I have resisted making the move to five string for decades, but now I am planning to take the plunge. The one that felt the best in the store was a used Lakland 55-94. I liked the spacing but hated the enormous oval bridge baseplate.

    I am planning to build the bass I want to have. I want the Lakland feel without the ugly bridge. I want to be able to choose between thru-body or top-load stringing,like on the Lakland.

    What are the specs of the Lakland bridge. What is the neck radius? What is the bridge radius? What is everything else you can think of that I need to know?
