ok....I have a double bass that I purchased used a while ago.I've been told it's rather old. Anyway....The fingerboard on it is warped where the 2nd,3rd,and 4th frets would be.So the person who owned it before me evidently made a homemade bridge to work better with the neck. I eventually want to replace the fingerboard and bridge but because of financial reasons I'm making do with what I have now. Well I recently replaced the endpin on it and for some reason the action seems to be alot lower causing my strings to rattle (The E string is the worst) whenever I play around in that area. I'm thinking that since I've swapped out the endpin maybe the tension isn't as tight as it was with my old endpin. So to remedy my problem I have moved the bridge about half an inch up closer to the fingerboard.And that seems to have done the trick. My question is, is that going to be in any way bad for my bass?I'd hate to somehow damage it because of the long term effect of having moved my bridge.
