    I want to upgrade the bridge on the SX p-bass shortscale thats on its way. As I intend to mod it to be a string thru body I need to find a bridge that will allow for string thru but also will not have a huge footprint because I dont know if i will have any room left to drill the holes.

    I was also wondering if its a string body I should have lots of sustain. Therefore I can use a lower mass bridge, correct? The one advantage of the lower mass bridge is that usually the bottom "ledge" isnt as thick. Therefore you can get the action a little lower.

    So yeah, if you could suggest a bridge that could work for me I would be grateful.

    Thanks as always. :)
