    In searching, I only came up with a paltry two threads related to this bridge.
    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=347242&highlight=transtone+bridge

    I'd like to know more about it.

    Is it being discontinued?

    Has anyone had any experience / success with them?

    It is rather hard to tell just by pictures how versatile / well designed it is.

    I have a blank P bass body so I can mount any bridge pattern I like. The satin finish of the transtone is appealing.

    Pros / cons?

    Any info would be greatly appreciated. What's out there in regards to this bridge is extremely sparse.

    If Hipshot offered any other bridge in this satin I'd prefer a top loading string design like the A or B, but they both have chrome. I'm trying to get away from chrome with this particular assemblage.

    Thanks! :smug:

    I know this is an old thread, but I'm curious, too. Bump.
