It is in fact time for a new bridge, because mine is bending backwards, haha. I have a Chinese plywood bass that went through a major overhaul to make it play and sound as good as possible, but the bridge is original, with adjusters that were added later. The funny thing is that it isn't bending at the adjusters, it's bending towards the top where all of the cut out sections are. So needless to say I'll be getting a new one. What is this process like? I'll be going into a luthier very soon to have this done. Do luthiers usually order a bridge in and fit it to the bass? Or do they make one from scratch? How much should I expect to pay if one is ordered, and how much should I expect to pay if one is custom made? I know which one will cost more...but I just want to know how much these things cost in general, how long it takes, and what the process is like.
