OVERVIEW

Extend the tonal range of your Strat.

It's a great-sounding bridge even without the pickups, and its special piezo crystal employs 2 deflection modes to give you shimmering highs and rich lows. The output level is comparable to that of a stock Strat and it will plug directly into most guitar amps with fine results. Its tremolo has a Delrin arm bushing for silky-smooth operation. Mounts with six screws and will fit older Strats without bridge posts.

FEATURES
  • Special piezo crystal with two deflection modes
  • Delrin arm bushing on trem for smooth action
  • Fits older Strats without bridge posts

      Comments about LR Baggs X-Bridge for Fender Vintage Strat:

      Bought this to install and use on a 2000 MIM Fender Strat. Fits like a glove. Buyer beware, no wiring diagram is included.

      I bought this without the control-X preamp. That being said, you do need to add a preamp after the output of the guitar. I have been using this with the POD HD500x, and it sounds fantastic with a preset geared towards piezo pickups. I'm sure an acoustic guitar preamp would work fine, though.

      As usual, musicians friend did a great job providing quick and free shipping. This would be a five star review if they had included a wiring diagram.

        Comments about LR Baggs X-Bridge for Fender Vintage Strat:

        I love building as much as playing, i wanted an acoustic guitar on electric guitar body and just decided to build one. Got the inspiration after seeing one on youtube but i cant buy one anywhere. After researching, i gave the product a try and im completely satisfied with. I was hesitant at first, how will it sound, it doesnt even have a preamp circuit, but after finishing i was surprised it was loud and sound good and even better sounding when used with acoustic effects.

        Comments about LR Baggs X-Bridge for Fender Vintage Strat:

        While it doesn't sound just like an electric acoustic (Martin or Taylor), It does sound nice enough to leave my Martin at home from now on. I installed it in my 79' Strat and with my BBE sonic maximizer direct box it sounds very nice. I would recommend that it be used with some sort of acoustic guitar D.I. or acoustic effects pedal, and that is what keeps it from getting a 5 Star rating. Plan on a 2-4 hour installation time for you D.I.Y. guys.

        X Bridge SOUNDS GREAT!

        By Vic

        from Pittsburgh, Pa

        Comments about LR Baggs X-Bridge for Fender Vintage Strat:


        I had this item installed on my Stratocaster. I have had experience with the Fishman Power Bridge and wasn't expecting anything impressive out of this at all other than a quacky quasi acoustic sound. Man was I surprised! NO QUACK! Plugged it into the church system today to noodle around with it, and with the help of the LR Baggs Para acoustic DI preamp which runs off of phantom power NO 9VOLT batteries to die on you) it sounds as good as my Ovation with it's OP 30 preamp easily. Now I only need one guitar and a back up if I break a string. It is wired where there is a master volume + tone pot for the Magnetic pups. The third pot is now the acoustic volume. With a Stereo "Y" cable I can blend between the two. No need to buy the Control X preamp if you have the much more accurate Para DI and wire it the way I had done. AAA+++

        Great quality, easy to install, and great upgraded to any strat, the sound is pretty close to an acoustic guitar, but dont expect the same sound, pretty clean too

        a great replacement bridge

        By firebird420

        from Michigan

        Comments about LR Baggs X-Bridge for Fender Vintage Strat:

        I used this bridge to replace the cheesy bridge in a yamaha pacifica, using a similar bridge. I would have to warn that the allen screws that came with the bridge don't raise high enough for that type of guitar anyway. The yamaha screws fit this just fine without overstretching the wires. This makes a good change in overall sound, and also works great with distortion.

        Worth Gold

        By Stb

        from Ventura CA

        Comments about LR Baggs X-Bridge for Fender Vintage Strat:

        Yeah I installed this in one of my strats to blend acoustic and electric playing on one guitar. The pickup sounds amazing with acoustic 10s but the electric part of the guitar sucks in acoustic string on it so I had to stay with the DR MT10s on it and the acoustic out through a M108 to get better low repose instead of the highs of the nickel strings put out. All around it is a great product with amazing quailty.

        A true hybrid at a fraction of the cost!

        By clutchman-e4PR1

        from Newton, MA

        Comments about LR Baggs X-Bridge for Fender Vintage Strat:

        I had this installed in my Mexican Vintage Strat, along with the Ctrl-X preamp, and I am thrilled with it. It required a bit of machining, but the result is well worth it. The Stratocaster's acoustic sound is surprisingly good, and the X-bridge captures it well. Moreover, it is a far superior vibrato mechanism than stock. With this bridge and a Teflon nut & string trees, I can bend or whammy as hard as I want without it going out of tune.

        Amazing

        By Ben Summers

        from Knoxville, TN

        Comments about LR Baggs X-Bridge for Fender Vintage Strat:

        I was really surprised how great these sound. I had read a lot of good things about this, but it is far better that I thought it would be.It doesn't really sound that much like an acoustic(sounds fairly similar to the output on an acoustic-electric), but it DOES sound great. You could probably use this to replace an acoustic on live stuff, but people would be able to tell the difference in tone.

        Where's that acoustic?????

        By Ibanezman_98-UZGqE

        from Chicago, IL

        Comments about LR Baggs X-Bridge for Fender Vintage Strat:

        I have installed this bridge on my new custom Warmoth Strat. I use it with CTRL-X preamp circuit. The sound is amazing. Every time I play live, everybody?s looking where the heck the acoustic guitar is, and they see me playing electric.I think it?s a great investment, if you don?t want to drag your acoustic on every gig.
