Well you know how it goes , browsing through ebay as you do when you come across a nice shiney cool looking bass.
I checked out the reviews and what they cost new and placed my maximum bid . well i only went and got it for less than half what they cost new :)

So it arrived and have it in front of me but the intonation is a little off, I normally set up my own gear with no problem but i have never seen this kind of bridge (ABM) .

BB-3420-003-web_1024x1024_zpsi2udnwss.jp

any advice on how to adjust it would be very welcome.

 

Thanks

Looks like the saddles just slide when not under pressure from the string.

yes thats the one , i found the locking grub screw to lock it into the rail , there is also another on the front i assumed it was on a cam system but apparently not. So from the info there is a hell of a lot of trial and error or extreme measurements to be taken and set.

 

Thanks for the link King kobra it was most helpful  :plus1:
