    Does anyone else make a Roller bridge thats adjustable for string spacing ?

    I believe the Schaller can be adjusted from 2-3/32" to 2½ "

    The Hipshot Type A bridge has adjustable string spacing. I bought one instead of the Schaller because I use a 5 string set on my 4 and I didn't want to modify the bridge to fit them.

    The HIPSHOT has a more expensive sounding name :D

    Yea, I paid about $80 for it from StewMac. It was around $15 more but I needed the top loading feature.

    Here is a link to it:Hipshot Type A bridge

    My luthier used a Hipshot Type A bridge on my 6 string and it works very nice. We have it set for the narrowest string spacing that it allows.

    Kelly, those hipshots look well made. So the price is reasonable. By the time we get such stuff over to Limey Land, they're usually twice the price :crying:

    Xyllion - thats what i'd do too. I like the option to reduce the string spacing to its narrowest
