    Which Aftermarket bridges would have a quick release feature? I'm familiar with the Hipshot Bridges, but I'm looking for a particular one that I can't think of right now. So if you could please post the name, pics, and the site of the bridge, it would help a lot. Thanks in advanced.

    ETS will sell to the U.S. I'm soon to buy one of their Tuning Fork bridges. You can't really beat those prices.

    Well, does anyone know if Gotoh has a quick release bridge? I've searched them up, but havent found any so far. I was thinking Gotoh because they have stuff that fits Standard Fender Basses as a direct replacement.

    You have to email them for a price list. It's in PDF format. If you drop me a PM with your email I can shoot it over to you.

    Forgot to mention that it's not a direct replacement for fender basses. I bought one of the quick release bridges for a project bass, put I haven't installed it yet.
