Mel; you may have gotten the idea the bass is mine too...
Sorry to say it's not. A forumbuddie on the Dutch board where I 'met' Oigun liked the build Oi was doing for me so much he kinda 'commisioned' The GUNman to build him a bass-guitar.
But wouldn't that be great if the guy and I formed a band with matching lefty GUNs?
Maybe a lefty drummer?
I'm wondering if Oigun could build a drumset? Image

Mosrite bass bridges do not have rollers only a slot cut with the high sharp edge of the slot to the front side of the post. Also the slots are cut straight not 'v' shaped like a standard non roller bridge. The slot varies with the width of each string. I may be able to find photo's on a disc if you need it.

Danny that would be great! So a bridge is a doable part to manufacture myself!! I read in your thead that you used an aluminium U-profile for the bridge, is that strong enough?

Btw Danny provide me the exellent tracings for this project without that I was dancing in the dark :geek:

The saddles are made of brass nickle plated. Here's a pic I found on the net. I'll try to find something showing a little more detail.
