    It's unlikely that changing the bridge will have much effect on your tone.

    +1. Changing the bridge on your bass wont buy ya much. The only time it really does if it's one of those cheapo bent metal ones. In any case, all you have to do is measure a bunch and go to retailers (such as stewmac, warmoth, partsexpress) and find one that'll match up.
