Dear Sadowsky people:

I’m the proud owner of a Sadowsky Metro Modern M5-24 bass guitar. This bass is amazing and is everything I need in a bass. I like the sound, the versatility and the look. However, after two years playing with this bass and others that I own, I'm sure that I am a lot more comfortable with a smaller distance between strings. My bass has 19 mm. (measured in the bridge) but I feel (and play) better with 17.5 mm.

The big question is: can I change the bridge of my bass and get 17.5 mm. between strings?  And the other questions are: Is there any problem with the pickups tolerance or with other things I can’t imagine? And of course, if the only that I have to do is changing the bridge, do you sell (or can recommend me) the compatible bridge I am looking for?

Thanks in advance for your help and support, and please, forgive my bad English.

We have an 18mm bridge we can sell you.  We only have it in nickel for $125.00
Hipshot has a 17.5mm (.687") bridge with adjustable string spacing.

Many thanks for your response. I think I will buy the Sadowsky bridge that you have told me soon.

Thanks again.
