: Does anyone have any sources?

: Thank you

A Kolstein bridge with Teflon-coated ebony adjusters is IMHO, the best adjustable bridge money can buy. The only thing is - it's quite a bit of money!

try www.kolstein.com

Most luthiers who work on basses regularly can fit a bridge with conventional metal adjusters. The ebony ones are nice because sometimes - but not always - the metal ones give a sort of metallic edge to the sound.

If you're a luthier or a do-it-yourselfer, try: http://www.lemur-music.com

They have bridges and adjusters

Hope that helps
