    While the hipshot doesn't have the "vintage look" of those awful gibson bridges, it will give your bass a whole new set of balls. If you're building a museum piece, you'll want to find a gold gibson bridge (if they exist)... but if you need to play the bass at all, go with the hipshot. Night and day difference, especailly in the E string.

    Yeah i still don't know how i am going to cover those holes left from the bridge pegs of the 3-point bridge.
     
  4. Hi.

    I'm not 100% sure since I haven't done any 3-point swaps but AFAIK, the Hipshot bridge uses the same mounting holes as the Gibson/Epi bridge does.

    Regards

    Is it really a good bridge for players who play there strings tight?
