Hipshot 4-string KickAss Bass Bridge

About This Item

A great feeling high-mass bridge with adjustable string spacing
Hipshot’s take on the original, celebrated high-mass bass bridge.

Some serious thought and design work has gone into making the KickAss Bridge a very versatile and comfortable bridge that works in most any situation.

At first blush, the KickAss might seem like a simple, heartfelt tribute to Leo Quan’s BadAss II bridge. A closer look, however, reveals significant improvements under the hood that put this bridge in a class of its own. Hipshot worked hard to ensure that the KickAss possesses the soul of the beloved original with serious improvements for adjustability and tone.

  • Fully adjustable pre-notched brass saddle inserts
  • Mounts with a typical 5 hole configuration
  • Recessed string ball holes for a sleeker, sexier look
  • 2-7/16" (61.89mm) maximum string spacing
  • Available in chrome and black

Easy upgrade for Fender basses. Worth the effort; worth the cost.

I'm pretty impressed with this bridge. It's bigger than the traditional Fender top loading bridge, but it has a low profile. My right hand hardly notices it, and it looks great. The tone and sustain are both improved. The string spacing adjustment is a nice bonus.

I replaced the vintage-style bridge on my Fender Jazz. The installation was very easy, and the both the sound and functionality of this bride are superior. My only small request would be to include a piece of the correct kind of tape for the ground wire, or at least include instructions about the ground wire.

I have played for 35 years. For about the last 12 I've been a big fan of the Jazz bass configuration, and recently got a fretless Player series. The bridge would unwind its own saddle adjustments because it vibrated so much and was, I guess made very loosely. So I was really just looking to put a stop to that, and had no idea what a change in my sound it would make. Every note feels tighter, and the strings feel like they are springier under my hands.

The intonation I enjoy now is far more precise and I feel like it has vastly improved my playing and my enjoyment of playing. I have 3 more Jazz basses I need to install this on.

Also it just looks amazing and very classy. Immediately improved the whole feel of the instrument.

To be clear, the Hipshot Kickass bass bridge has not been mounted, yet. But, the design and construction of the bridge is top notch solid and those attributes sold the product to me. What is reviewed here is StewMac's inventory, ease of ordering, delivery and follow-up...five stars all around! It seemed as if the order was delivered as soon as "Place My Order" was in their system. Nice!
