Embassy PRO bridge

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Fray Arsenio, Jun 20, 2019.

  1. Hello, my friends. I'm thinking about getting an Epiphone Embassy PRO. I've heard great things about this bass, but I'm a little afraid about the Tune-o-matic bridge.
    What are your impressions on it? Should I change it for a regular fixed one? Let me hear your comments, please.

    I have to think you could put the Babicz 3-point full-contact bridge on it.
    Gibson was actually using them on the Thunderbirds.
    Makes set up a breeze.

    This style bridge won't drop in on the new "claw type" D style 2 piece bridge on the new Thunderbird Vintage or Embassy pro. I contacted Babicz and they said the anchor placement is entirely different. So you'd need to re-drill holes. For a drop in swap I am looking at the HipShot - 4 String D Style Bass Bridge

    Did you ever swap out the stock bridge? I'm interested to know if the Hipshot fit.
