The Hipshot A Style Bass Bridge has become one of the most popular high quality bass bridges available today. This 5 string version is milled from a solid block of either brass or aluminium for your tonal preference, the saddles are nested into channels to remove any sideways motion and are individually intonatable and height adjustable. The string spacing is 18 mm (.708") as standard but each string is adjustable in the saddle to give 1.5 mm (0.06") side to side adjustment for better string, pickup and neck alignment. The Hipshot A Style Bass bridges give you the choice of either top loading the strings through back of the bridge or mounting them through the guitar body for the tone you prefer.

The usual Hipshot quality!
I always use Hipshot parts in my builds and this one is up to their typical high quality and offers maximum adjustability when dialling in the optimum set up. A good deal lighter than the all brass version but only the base plate is aluminium and the saddles remain solid brass.
