I bought this, upgraded the bridge and never played it. I no longer have the original bridge. The Hipshot is a HUGE improvement! I also shielded the pickup cavity with copper tape. Aside from 2 small dings on the back, it's perfect with flawless fretwork and low action with no buzzing. Strung with a brand new set of Chromes flatwounds. I'll also include a free set of rounds. Ships in a nice quality, brand new gig bag. $200 shipped in CONUS. PM your email address and I will send a Paypal invoice. Check out my stellar TB feedback!
