    erm, bump.
     
  3. I believe the Gibson replacement bridge is made by Hipshot (but don't take that as being Gospel). If so, they would probably do a black one for you if you contacted them directly.

    The black 5 string is an ABM bridge, Hipshot make a similar (A style) bridge. Both are excellent (we use the Hipshot A style).

    Thank you. I would use the Hipshot A style, but It's on the pricey side.
     
  5. Well, the ABM is even more expensive....so....

    ;)

    A word of advice, it doesn't pay in the long run to skimp on stuff like hardware. A difference of $20-25 is not worth saving, get the good stuff, you'll thank me later!

    I am a function over form guy and Schaller does offer bridge with similar build philosphy and different asthetics.
