Bass Guitar Whammy Bar Answered

Does anyone have any good information on how to get a whammy bar retro-fitted onto a 4-string bass? or at least where to get a bridge/bar? help much appreciated!

I would think they are not too common because they would really put some stress to stretch those bigger bass strings. The tuning would probably go out of whack even worse over time.

Kayler makes bass guitar whammy bars for bass but they are not cheap by any means. The average price is between 379 dollars. Once you get it you must have it put in which is not cheap at all. It cost between 300 and 400 dollars. Here is a link for the Kayler company.

Wouldn't a fretless bass be able to do pretty much the same thing?

I've never seen a whammy bar on a bass. I bet you can do some crazy things with it.
