SG Bass mod for bridge

    I have modded SG basses by adding a 'trapeze', which is a Squier Bronco bass bridge (without the saddles). This allows to get rid of the 'pull' on the bridge, the silk of the strings going over the saddles and to use long scale strings (although not sure about Labella flats which do not like to have any bit of winding bent).
    The Bronco bridge has the right spacing, so the stings do not ┬┤fan out' between bridge and trapeze. I just thought I would share.

    Works for me. Add some after-length and you're good to go. The increased total string length will also change the compliance and may give you some extra "bounce" under the fingertips.
