    has anyone had experience w/ more than one of the listed piezo bridges?
    i just bought the abm and am considering purchasing and a style from jason at hipshot loaded w/ graphtech's and wanted opinions rom anyone who's done a shootout.

    the goal of my application is to have a 4 string piezo alone- no mag.

    thanks for anyone who can spare some wisdom.

    (EDIT: Just noticed OP posted from 2006...oops! but maybe this will be helpful to others)

    Tom Clement just built me a fretless with a hipshot/ghost (graphtec) piezo + Bart combo.

    On its own the hipshot/ghost combination is an amazing pickup. Running through a aggie buffer and active preamp, it sounds warm and sweet. Very, very musical. You can eq super attack as well as deep bottom from it. My piezo "posse" is pretty extensive--im very impressed by this rig.

    Im already plotting another bass with the bridge/piezo only.
