BASS BRIDGES

When it comes to selecting correct bridge to your bass guitar there is just two main things to consider, if we leave visual side behind at that point. 

First factor is STRING SPACING - Standard Fender bass has string spacing of 19mm - Which is fine for 4 & 5-string basses - Although for 5-string (and up) bass you might want to consider tad narrower spacing. This also helps to keep neck width narrower at the heel of the neck.

 

Some bridges are with fixed string spacing while some might give possibility to adjust it. If string spacing is not known you can just tell me what is your preferred bass and we can take it forward from there.

Also if MULTISCALE  is your preferred choice - Then options are limited to Solo Rails which can be found from both Hipshot & Babicz

BABICZ FCH 4 & 5

The Babicz "Full Contact Hardware" for four & five-string bass guitars offers unmatched stability, increased sustain, dramatically improved fullness and tone along with complete adjustability.
