Hello

Just got my first bean bass but it doesn't have the original bridge. Anybody know if I can buy a replacement or have a spare original I could buy?

Cheers

Thanks Quimby

You were correct, Kevin at Electrical Guitars does supply them and I've now ordered one.

Many thanks

Unsure whether you'll get any type of notification when someone posts here.

#222 was mine about 30 years ago and I'd be happy to share a bit of background information on it if you're interested.

It was in a bit of a mess when I got it - £379 from a guitar shop in Lewisham; the fingerboard was lifting and there was a bridge saddle missing, so I had the neck stripped, the ebony board put on and the BadAss installed. The work was done by a luthier in Twickenham who built these beautiful Baroque instruments. It was fretless for a while. I have photos of the work somewhere.

After a while, I had the neck refretted. The work was done by the late Dick Knight, who worked out of his house somewhere near Guildford. I used it for a few more years, until for a number of reasons trading it in (ABC Music, Addlestone) for a different bass. Back then, no one was interested in Beans. In hindsight, I should have just put it in a bag and left it under the bed.

I often wondered what happened to it and found out it had been sold on eBay in 2012, the seller lives less than 15 miles from my current location. I hope it's working well for you...I'd love to say hello to it again!

Best
Paul
