    I just bought my 2nd Rumblefish and am considering installing an upgrade bridge. Not that there's anything wrong with the stock bridges, but my thinking is that a high mass bridge might increase sustain and bolster the tone. I'd like to hear from any Reverend owners about ANY upgades/changes that they've made, and the reasons why and outcomes. It would also be cool to learn if any of you are using effects with the Rumblefish.

    I have 3 'fish, the most recent being a mahogany topped premium bought as a demo from their website. The premium has a much beefier bridge than the stock on the previous 2, but I notice no real difference. I think these basses sustain pretty well for bolt-ons. fresh strings would give the optimal sustain. i've made no modifications to my fish, and don't intend to-I like them the way they are. I've used a little bit of effects w/ the 'fish, just for fun, but I think the tone on them is so sweet by itself!

    Mine is an early JJ. I have never felt the need for any mods whatsoever. I just change to different types of strings when I want to shake things up. :)

    It's interesting that Watspan used the word "sweet" to describe the Rumblefish tone, because that's exactly how I think of it -- especiall in the upper registers. I'm still hoping someone on TB will write with more thoughts on my original questions........
