I just got a new bass, so I've decided I'm gonna pimp the hell out of my old one. I've carved off the frets an it actually worked and sounds amazing. Is there any way I could throw a whammy bar on there to?

Thanks

Yeah its do-able but you've just got to make sure you have the right hardware on it to support a whammy system

Kahler makes bass trem units too, they are a bit pricey though just like their guitar models. I don't think it will really be worth the effort and money just to add a bass whammy for the heck of it.

I'd definitely go kahler, it's expensive but there's no routing big holes for a spring cavity, just measuring and drilling a few holes.
