    Hello, I have an Epi Jack Casady bass with a bridge like those found on the Gibson EB series basses. I would like a bridge with individualy adjustable string height. Do any exist?

    Bump

    Yes, this thread is ancient, but I'm in the same situation. I love the Jack Casady, but I find that the "A" string is higher than the rest. This really effects the way the bass is set up! Anyone?
     
  3. As someone pointed out earlier on another thread, the badass bridge was invented to replace these specific bridges.

    Here's one.

    Hi Treena,
    Really? Will that bridge that you posted work on the Jack Casady? I thought that I might have some trouble since it is a 3 point bridge.
     
  5. This is the post I'm talking about............

    I can see that the 3 point is a problem. Maybe if you post this question in the SET UP Forum, Hambone or someone can help you out! The thread won't get burried over there!

    I do think you might find some help with the Gibson Bridges at..........

  6. I dont think it would work cause of the casady's arched top, can anybody confirm this?
     
  7. You guys are correct. The Jack Casady is hollow with an arched top and that precludes the use of the BadAss.

    When I stated the above about the BA, I was referring to the EB, Artist, a few other models that used the 3 point "floater" style bridge. These are all solidbodies though.

    I'm short of advice on what you might use on the JC to get around this problem.

    Sorry for the confusion.
     
  8. The confusion was on my behalf and I apologize if I caused you any problems Hambone!
