Hipshot A/B Retrofit String Through Compatability w/ Badass III

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by primussucks9126, Jan 1, 2012.

  1. Hey everyone, I've got a pretty specific question about the retrofit versions of the Hipshot's bridges. Does anyone know if these 3 hole models line up the same as a Badass III w/ the string through option?

    The website says that they're designed to fit with deluxe Fenders with the 3 hole/string through bridges, but as I've never really messed with one, I don't know if the Badass III would work with that either.

    as the badass IIIs are also designed for through-body fenders, it should be the same.

    i gotta say though, i don't know that either one is any improvement over the stock fender string-through bridge, which is actually really good.
