Hi, I feel stupid asking this question but I'm going to attempt to make my own bass (with help from my next door neighbour). My question is, which part, exactly, is the bridge? I have seen a few diagrams and each point it out at a different spot. Some say it is behind the saddle or around there. Others say that it is near the pickups. I know what your thinking "He's going to make a guitar but doesn't know where the bridge is!!" This is vital because I need to be able the measure the scale (I want to make it 34"). Apparently you measure this between the bridge and the nut. Any help would be great, thanks.
