      Comments about Hipshot Brass A-Style Bass Bridge Mount 1 - No String Through:

      Fit my short scale jaguar bass. Really improved the sound compared to the junk bridge that came with the bass. Pretty easy to install. Love it. The black finish will probably rub away over time but that doesn't personally bother me.

        Comments about Hipshot Brass A-Style Bass Bridge Mount 1 - No String Through:

        When I upgraded the pickup on my inexpensive P-Bass it definitely improved the tone of it, but when I installed this bridge...WOW, what a difference! It gave my bass deeper lows and mids. It also improved the sustain dramatically! If you have a bass that just doesn't "do it" for you, consider installing this bridge. Its so easy to install and requires no drilling. It will change your dud into a "keeper".

        Comments about Hipshot Brass A-Style Bass Bridge Mount 1 - No String Through:

        Improved sound, no question. Deeper lows and rich mid-range. Very solid and quiet. I think a little presence was lost with the Hipshot but my Sans Amp will cover that. Chrome looks great on my Squire Vintage 70's Jazz. I like it. This is certainly not inexpensive but you get what you pay for with this one.

        Eliminate the Twang

        By Fender Freak

        from Indiana

        Comments about Hipshot Brass A-Style Bass Bridge Mount 1 - No String Through:

        I replaced the original bridge on a '72 Precision bass with a Hipshot Brass A-Style Bass Bridge Mount 1. Original bridge was the stamped steel bridge that Fender is fond of using. The bass worked well but had a twang in the sound that I tuned out with a parametric midrange but the frequency would move. The high mass bridge eleiminates the twang! The sound is now much deeper with good overtones, really brings the bass alive. Installation was easy, I used setup instructions from the Fender web site. I have a fretless J-Bass that I plan to change soon.
        Like the side to side adjustment.

        Hipshot Brass A-Style Bass Bridge

        Comments about Hipshot Brass A-Style Bass Bridge Mount 1 - No String Through:

        This bass bridge is an easy install into my fender precision. higher mass and much more solidly constructed, features adjustable string spacing. very noticeable increase to sustain and the overall tone of the guitar, sounds fuller and more rich. i get more thump out of my low strings and more bell-like ring out from my high strings..sounds sick with my flat wound strings. overall big upgrade from a small item thats definitely worth the price and time to install. 5 out of 5.

        Excellent Bridge.

        By Kelvinator-wUpB9

        from Beautiful Fairview PA

        Comments about Hipshot Brass A-Style Bass Bridge Mount 1 - No String Through:

        I bought this bridge to replace the standard "bent piece of tin" on a Fender Deluxe P Bass. The Hipshot is a nice heavy bridge, solid construction, and is beautifully machined and finished.I like Hipshots for their high-quality and features like adjustable string spacing, massive saddles, and ease of adjustment.It took only minutes to mount this bridge and set the string height & intonation perfectly. The difference in sustain & tone is subtle but noticeable, and a definite improvement. I have another Fender P with the Hipshot string-through bridge, and a Gibson SG-RI with a Hipshot bridge; I've been totally satisfied with every one of them. I've been playing for over 40 years, and have used a variety of bridges; in my opinion, Hipshot is the best. Try one - you won't be disappointed.
