    I want to add a Hipshot bridge with GraphTec saddles Hipshot 5 String A Style Piezo Bass Bridge - Best Bass Gear to a Carvin AC50 to solve a nasty string balance issue.

    What I can't find using Google is a board with the (5) pots. Anyone know (a) what these are generally called so I can search better, and/or (b) where I can get one? Do they usually come as a complete buffer, or is this a separate piece of equipment?

    Have you verified there's enough solid wood in that bass to covert it from a glued on acoustic bridge to a bolt on metal one?

    Your best bet is to look for a complete preamp setup.

    It's actually a chambered solidbody, and under the bridge is indeed solid wood.

    I've been searching every way I can imagine, and still only coming up with single-channel preamps. Starting to wonder if these are only made by bass manufacturers for their own instruments...?
