The Hipshot 8 String Multi-Scale Fixed Bridge is an innovative, premium quality guitar bridge that allows different scale lengths to be used across the eight strings. Hipshot is at the forefront of guitar hardware production, making one of the only (if not the only) readily available ranges of multi-scale bridges in the hardtail format, advantages of the one-piece hardtail over the more tradition single string multi-scale bridges is a smoother top for increased hand comfort, easier installation due to consistent string spacing and reduced mounting holes required and easier intonation adjustments from the use of traditional hardtail saddles. The bridge body is machined from a solid block of brass for superior quality and tone and the bridge walls eliminate any side to side movement of the saddles. The saddles are machined from stainless steel for clarity and response and their block design further adds to the comfort against the hand while playing. The string through body anchoring provides maximum sustain and sound transmission to the guitar body and the classic hardtail design is quick and easy to restring.
We supply this right handed bridge in an 18° and 21° angle (this is the amount the bass side of the bridge is angled backwards from vertical, a normal single scale hardtail bridge being 0° degrees and completely vertical), please ensure you have thoroughly planned your guitar design and know the bridge angle required (we have estimated that an 18° bridge would be used for a 27"-28.625" multi-scale with a perpendicular 9th fret and a 21° bridge would be used for a 27*-28.625" multi-scale with a perpendicular 7th fret).
