    I know everybody always says to do a search and I did but didn't find everything I wanted so I'm just going to say everything I'm looking for and ask for straightforward responses. These are parts for the fretless fiver I am building. **Money is limited**

    -Bridge- 5 string silver bridge with wide spacing- preferably around .75". Comparable looks to a badass or something like, just a sturdy bridge that gets the job done.
    -Tuners- 5 silver tuners that will stay in tune :rolleyes: Would be nice to order them in a bundle of 5.
    -Ebony fretboard (or blank)

    Have you tried a "Wanted" ad here? I think you'd have better luck than here in Basses.

    Well, not as much for me now as it has been in the past... However, life still finds a way of stickin' it in and breakin' it off from time to time!! LOL!!!
