hey everybody
is it possible to put this

into this?

the stock bridge doesnt have enough sustain, and it's really pissing me off.
the reason i ask this is because the stock bridge looks a lot like the bridges on most fender jazz basses and p basses, but i dont want to spend $89 if it wont work.
thanks in advance

It looks like it will. if not, you can put in new holes for it- carefully.

I was sitting here, playing my black Ergodyne. Right now, it's in my hands, I'm playing it. I clicked on the link, and for about 5 seconds, I thought "Huh. That bass looks oddly familiar."

I realize this is spam, but I think it's notable spam. To show everyone how thick I can be.

if your sustain on a fretted note is less than your sustain on an open note, the bridge is not the problem. that would be your technique. i believe the BadAss bridges are great. but proper installation of a bridge is an advanced procedure. in most cases the $89 would only be worth it if, you have it properly installed by a professional. as far as will it work on your bass? i would e-mail Leo Quann, they build the BA, and they should know better than us.

actually, i have the same amount of sustain on fretted notes as on open notes, so its not my technique. besides, i get fine sustain on my jazz bass. the problem is that the action is so ****ing low on the stock bridge that the strings vibrate against the frets. and the action is already at its highest.
and before anybody tells me to get a new bass, i love this bass to death. it has a great, growling low end, and a really nice feel in my hands. its also pretty lightweight.
anyways, yah, its not my technique.
pretty round-about way of saying it.

Not entirely true. With a longer length/mass of string vibrating, it will have more energy, so will have more sustain.

If you're thinking like that, it can also be said that the string will also lose that extra energy faster.

does that mean i could get better sustain with thicker strings?
i know that would also solve the floppy b string problem, cuz i keep the thing in drop-a.

Heavier guages have more tension, as they need to be tighter to get the same pitch. Therefore, heavier guages to reduce string floppiness.

And Nutter. Just try it. I find that my notes on the first fret sustain a lot longer than at the 24th fret.

awesome. so heavier gauges will decrease floppiness, and it will increase sustain as well?

Increase tension, yes.

Increase sustain, I think so, though the difference may be too small to really notice. However, I do notice my low B and E stings sustain far more than my G string.
