Hipshot 4-String Bass Bridge

About This Item

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).

A great bridge

(Customer's Reviews)

This is a great bridge. I had one before on a mike lull bass and really liked it. I bought this for an PBass build, where I wanted a string through body option.
What I like most about this bridge is the way the strings load into it. If you are not using string through the strings don't have to be passed through bridge, instead they drop into place through a slot in the top of the bridge. I like this because string change outs are easy, and there is less chance of damaging them if you wish to reuse them.
I also like the adjustability and overall feel of this bridge. There aren't any sharp areas and it looks more finished than a badass 2 to my eye.


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!
