BUILDS & WORK IN PROGRESS

Bass guitar bridge built from a cog

Rebuilding an old bass with a modern, factory made bridge, I tried to remove the chrome plating from the saddle pieces with a gas torch. Surprised to see the "metal" bubble & form a pool of white crystal. Guess I'm not the only one sick of poor quality parts, found this mangle cog & decided to build one from scratch, the corners were missing so brass was cut & silver soldered in. the saddles are heat blued steel & the channels were milled in. The metalwork on the instrument has been treated to match. Neck is from an old European made P-bass, body is cut from a single piece of Ash & stained with A home made dye.

BAS-RELIEF SCRATCH PLATE

A new scratch plate designed to fit as a direct replacement for M.M instruments, supplied pre-drilled for Stingray or un-drilled to fit other M.M / O.L.P type bass guitars. Scratch plate textured surface gives extra thumb positions, offering more anchor points than just relying on the edge of the pickup
