hendrikjan Posted January 5, 2006 Report Share Posted January 5, 2006 Hey hello, I am slowly contineuing my five string fretless bass project. I am reading a lot and it takes a lot of time designing the whole thing... slow steps, many decissions etc. etc. (it is also my first project) I just recently received a Badass V bass bridge, I am not sure whther it is really all that but it looks solid and i read nice reviews (all hype???). I planned to use this as a normal bridge, i.e. not string thru. When i read the info on the package it mentioned that it was also possible to use it as a string thru bridge. Which made me ponder that idea... What has me puzzled though, is the angle the string should make. Should it go straight through the body of the guitar and then make an almost 90 degree angle into the bridge or could you also drill holes at an angle... instead of drilling trought the "back" of the bass you drill holes through the side (the side that also holds the strap button) this would result in a different angle and it would probably also have influence on the wy the bass sounds. I have not been able to find any info on this matter on this site or any other for that matter ... Any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
