I've never tried a Warwick bridge but if you don't like then go ahead and change it.

I find the Warwick bridge to be fantastic, if you use it properly (Lock down the locking screws), and its carved rather deep into the body, so replacement is no small task.

OP, What problems are you having with the bridge?

the hex on the locking screw stripped so i cant get enough tension on it to tighten up the insert which makes the height adjustment wonder. the warwick website says that particular bridge brings out the top end sound of the strings more so maybe i should just get some new grub screws and not worry about changing it.

cheers dudes

new screws- cheaper, and you really can't improve the tone enough for it to matter what bridge you put on it.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

You cant really put a new bridge in at all with Warwick basses.

They are routed really quite deep into the body, whereas most bridges are flat mounted to the body.

Go with a new set of screws.

the bridge doesn't suck, you suck for using the wrong sized allen key

Anything Warwick is awesome. I just bought a 6-string Corvette. Love it. But do what you think sounds best to your ear, man. Like with any craft, stay with what you like. There's no reason to think otherwise just because someone else doesn't agree.

The straplocks are useless, they fail constantly after a while. But otherwise yeah Waricks are awesome. I had similars problems with my bridge, but my warwick is pretty old. I replaced al the bolts screws etc and gave it all a really good clean. Works wonders now.
