Hi all. A quick question for owners of a Schaller 3D-5, bridge can you fit a .140 B string with this bridge? Some sites list a .135 as the maximum, however if I were to get a .140 with a bridge taper would it fit? The reason I ask is that I have an Ibanez GSRM25 28.6” 5 string Mikro bass coming and I also have a 3D-5 coming with it ready to fit as the standard Ibanez B10/B15 bridges are known for being a nightmare to intonate. Being a short scale bass I am after some thicker strings to just provide a little bit of extra tuning stability, I currently have a 4 String Mikro setup for BEAD with Dunlop Flats .125-.65 and I’ve also tried the standard Ibanez .130-.65 rounds and they are just a little bit temperamental on the low B, sometimes it will tune and play great other times it can be a nightmare to lock in accurate tuning. There is a custom string manufacturer in the UK who will make me strings in any length/gauge/taper that I want so I was planning .140/.110/.90/.70/.50 with the .140 being tapered at both ends, hopefully that little bit of extra thickness will just make tuning that little bit more stable, but now I’ve seen the bit about .135 being the maximum on the 3D-5 I’m now a little worried as I don’t wanna take the drill to a brand new and not cheap bridge to mod it. The problem is the 3D-5 is the only bridge I can get easily in the UK which will accommodate the Ibanez 16.5mm string spacing as the Gotoh’s etc are all for 18/19mm spacings, and the only other bridges I’ve seen are the Hipshot Kickass which is difficult to get in the UK in the 16.5mm spacing model and also half as expensive again over the 3D-5, and a no name one from AllParts but it doesn’t have traditional intonation screws as the saddles are loose and from reading up this is a nightmare to setup because of that. So has anyone got a 3D-5 and if so would a .140 fit without modding if it was tapered?
