so i am getting my badass bridge installed for my fender finally and the luthier was asking me if i want grooves installed on the bridge. i told him yes thinking that i play on the agressive side i wouldent want to jar the string.

the point is i was giong to ask if i was right? it's going to be a few days before he actually starts so if i am wrong it's okay i can just ask him i changed my mind on grooves. i read on the forum a long time ago that you had to have grooves on the badass bridges but i'm just clarifying information here.

Yes, the grooves are for your strings to go in, otherwise they'll slide around all over the bridge and your intonation will be poo and playing that bass will be nasty.

The reason he asked you was so because you might have wanted to sort out your own grooves and intonation yourself.

maybe... i really hope he does a good job he worked on a friend of mine's strat replaced pickups, bridge and tuneing knobs and did the action intonation, and truss rod and it plays like butter( in the good way) and so i took it to him based on the referal and because he does it personally cheaper then any of the music shops around... jsut a little nervous and anxious
