Started out at school with bass, played a hockey stick headstock Samick with a tiny amp, moved to a P bass for years with a home made tube head and JBL cab, sold that and got an Ibanez ATK active 5 string (wish I never sold that) played through a Jfet Jansen Crusader 330, 18" Peavey cab and the previous 18" JbL in new cab (full stack).

Then one day had enough, traded it all in on a Les Paul! (converted to the dark side)
Only bass I have now is an Epi short scale EB-0

Fitted my gotoh bridge to the SX, nice to be able to accurately set intonation.
New bridge for the aria is perfect post spacing but need to fit new post bushings - the aria has none.

I've found one in the parts box but need to find the other, bit of drilling, loose gluing (I'd like to revert back to the shit old bridge if I ever sell) and fannys your aunt! Till then I'll play the tits off my p-bass :)

Is he still alive?

Found my other matching bridge bushing. This will be a great upgrade on the Aria, its a keeper but the bridge will be reversible if ever it does get sold and somebody wants a vintage crappy to setup and intonate piece of shit bridge :) I can understand that, I've lived with that bridge and intonation since I got it - but I was always planning on getting one of these and making the bugger fit.

Just need to sort a couple of decent metric cap screws tomorrow and bobs your auntie fanny's hubby. Will take pics if anyones interested.

Yes photos are good
I have no idea what you mean about bushing (for example)

No point in having an instrument that you can't tune properly :thumbup:

Yeah was thinking about it but not keen on a PJ. Vanity would force me to get the body fixed.
