    I'd like to go w bridge tuners for my experimental tapping instr. Do bass Hipshots have tuners on them? Will they work for gtr strings? I'm not seeing another solution. There's no supplier for Steinberger bridges anymore. Any suggestions?

    Maybe you could use ABM 3801 single bridges?

    Thanks. That looks like a viable solution.

    I thought they were going to work but looks like they're too wide. They're minimum is 10mm but the spacing called for is .300". :squint:

    Ok. That's quite narrow. Are we talking .3" on the bridge or headstock side?

    It's a Chapman stick type instrument so it's both a bridge and a nut measurement. 7.62mm all the way down.
