Parts, Repair and Upgrades

If you're repairing, upgrading or otherwise modifying your bass - or maybe building a custom project - we have a variety of useful parts. Quality German-made tuning machines, real ebony fingerboards and tailpieces, steel and carbon fiber endpins, maple necks, spruce soundposts, quality bridges... even cool add-on "Kay" and "Engelhardt" logos for your tailpiece!

You might also check out our books section for some great "how-to" books on setup/repair and bass building.
