Hi all. Just a quick question. I think I need to get a new bridge fitted. The symptoms I have are: 1) Fairly harsh bending of the top portion of the bridge, it pulls towards the pegbox. 2) The bridge likes to lift up and up and up, I tune up and it lifts a bit more, I tune more and it lifts again, eventually I have to whack it a little further up the body with the spine of a heavy book. Obviously this does no favours to my intonation. 3) On extreme occasions though not uncommonly the bridge will fall, twice now this has happened. Usually during long periods of playing with others when I can't stop to make adjustments other than to tune up, we play, I go flat, I tune up a touch, we play, I go flat, we tune up a touch, after a couple of hours the bridge falls with a fairly thunderous sound. The bass is a CCB, around a year old. The bridge looks to be made of fairly cheap wood and not brilliantly cut either. I couldn't tell you which way the grain runs because it doesn't look to actually have grain. What else? Oh yes. 4) The tail piece seems to pull a little towards the the bass side of the instrument, next time I have the tension off the thing I'll try and pull it a little further over before retuning but is this normal? It does mean that I have more space on the treble side of the fingerboard which I try to correct when whacking my bridge into place (the tail piece usually pulls it back as it is nowhere near centred) Thanks and I'll cross my fingers for some replies!
