There was an individual on here that upgraded his Gretch G2220 bass earlier this year. He upgraded the bridge with a high mass version. Im doing the same however the 5 bolt HM bridge i got doesnt have the exactly same screw pattern and I’m trying to find out which one I need to get that will match as I dont want to have to drill new holes. Does anyone know which one I need to get?
I understand the Fender Hi Mass Bridge IV Brass is a direct replacement not needing to drill new holes ?
Looks like Gotoh fits…
But everything I read says there is no need.
What are you thinking you will get by upgrading?
Just curious for my own knowledge and interest.
What pickups do you have installed?
Your upgrades have turned a great bass into an awesome bass.
I’ve installed Hipshot tuners, Hipshot high mass bridge, tape wound strings, lined the cavity with copper tape, rewired it so i have separate volume controls for the bridge and neck pickups with seperate tone control, replaced the jack with a multi contact pure tone and all the pots are 250k CTS versions. All new wiring and replaced the three way switch with a 250k pot to serve as the tone control. Going to hold off on the pickups for now. May look into a bone nut down the road but it sounds great so far
I would think it plays really great. And the things you have done only enhanced it’s playability. Good job!
That was a pic from the interweb.
Just helping out, I don’t have this bass. Not my gig.
Ok, they sort of look like tv jones pickups, pretty expensive pickups.
@Rvinny Great job, Rich.
