ufff, not anymore since I have now this new bridge...
Many thanks anyway!
There isn't much that you can do to fix the bridge to the bass without having more holes. And from the looks of it, if you plug up the 3 insert holes from teh 3point bridge, you'd only be drilling 3 new holes to hold the new bridge you have so in a way, you're not putting anymore holes into the bass itself, you're just re-arranging the placement and size of the holes.
mmmm, the problem is that I have to remove the old pieces and I don´t know how, since they are stuck into the body. any idea?
If ever tender prey sees all this, he could answer you how to do so. He modified one of his goths with a whole new finish and pickups/bridge. Drop him a PM, i'm sure he'll be glad to help you if he can.
Was wondering, is there any significant difference between post 88 thunderbirds? Other than finish options. Do they sound, weigh differently?
The body has stayed the same size, but has been offered in some different wood combinations, i.e. the "Zebra Bird" and the Nikki Sixx Mk.II. There were also the "Studio" models, which are set neck with no raised center block and a different bridge ( I still want one!). Also during that time there have been at least 4, yes, four different versions of the the TB Plus Black Plastic coated pickup!
Just checking in, cleaning my Blackbird right now and took the pick guard off it, quite like it!
And here is a picture from a few months back of my girlfriend with my 'bird, her favorite bass of mines
Here's a tip I found elsewhere:
Place a small screw or steel ball (from a ball bearing) into the cavity of the anchor, and then slowly screw the stud into the anchor - The anchor should then slowly move out of the body as you gradually screw the stud into the anchor...
Can't wait to replace my old fender with an epi classic IV pro.
Hey, I didn't know chuck norris played bass.
He kills it.
Who's going to tell him he can't play bass
Thanks. I knew about the studio, and had been wanting one too for a couple of years. Zebra wood yeah, and the MKII sixx bass. I was more wondering about the like simple thunderbirds. raised block, all black hardware, mohagany and ply's. It was more to know if withing like different years of those thunderbirds, if there were any significant changes in tone since they all look the same. 4 versions of tb plus plastic pickups!! That's unreal.
It does look good gardless, more clean. My goth is like that too, guardless and i ditched the controls for a kill just like the black bird. Also, i sanded down the edges to the red wood (mohagony) and added a little red paint for it to come out more, make it like binding, did the same to the headstock but just the internal part. gotta do it a little bit more. Without further a due here she is. Her name is Purdy
For a change of pace my '77 Thunderbird I'm usually seen with a NR around my neck.
I just bought this from Carlo ( Cataldo basses) a series 3 Bach NR. These are great basses for the money and the closest thing you are going to find to a real NR. I have owned as many as three of these at a time but this brings me up to two A few mods in mind a Dimarzio model G under a chrome cover, vintage tug bar, repro 60's tail piece (I make 'em) repro pg (I make those to) and gold knobs.
Scott, you must have a fair portion of Di Marzio's production of Model G's
LOL lose or installed I think I have 8-10 around.
That's really liking a pickup!
That BaCH is sweet! I still kinda miss mine.
She is purdy as well! I love it, very nice indeed!
