I am building a 31" scale length electric upright bass(26 inches of fingerboard is enough for me!), and am having trouble finding information on bridges and tailpieces. I would rather not fashion my own and use standard sizes. So I need to find appropriate sizes for these two CRUCIAL components. I am an electric luthier and know not of string bass measurements. Please help me!
2 3/8" string width at bridge-outer edge E to outer edge G
Would a 4/4 Cello bridge and tailpiece give me the size I need? Or would a 1/4 Double Bass, or a 1/2 Double Bass? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
