Versatile adjustable string spacing! When it's time for an upgrade, Hipshot's bass bridges belong at the top of your list.

This machined solid brass bridge reflects Hipshot's impressive workmanship and innovative design. The channeled baseplate prevents lateral saddle movement, a great idea that helps keep your bass in tune. Along with precise intonation and height adjustment, each saddle can be adjusted over 1/16" from side-to-side for variable string spacing—a nice touch for adapting comfortably to a variety of neck widths. Strings can be mounted from the top or through the body, another versatile feature.

Mounting screws and Allen wrench included.

Unadjusted string spread 2.25" (57.15mm).

Almost Perfect

A locating template should be included with this bridge. That would make it a 5 star product. That said, I installed this bridge on my Peavey Fury. It is a great bridge. It would be a nice upgrade even on several models of "Professional" instruments. The lateral adjustments make it easy to align your strings with the pole pieces of the pickup. Great punchy tone and impressive sustain for sale here!

Recommended this to a client who had been thinking Badass II, we liked this one better for the string spacing flexibility....

Replaced the stock bridge, got a new bass. Feels tighter and more precise than ever before.

I was nervous about getting this for my main bass but after installing I am glad I did. The abilities of this bridge are phenomenal. Being able to not only adjust string height/intonation but the string spacing allowed me to love my bass even more. It changed the overall appearance as well, from a generic to something a bit better.
