    I just bought a new bass, and the hipshot bridge on it sucks. I can't intontate the thing properly because on the short bridge screw and the saddle move around. Anyone know of a good replacement? It needs to be black and top loading.
    I'd really hate to route the body. Its got the 4 screw arrangement that looks pretty standard. Help!

    What brand of bass did you buy?
  3. Try an ABM for what I would consider one of the finest pieces you could put on your bass. Some call it a Hipshot copy but I rather think it is the other way around. The ABM doesn't use a spring loaded screw to the saddle like the Hipshot - they don't have to! The tolerances of the ABM are superior to the Hipshot. They come in black too!

    Hmm, you never hear about ABM.
  5. On the three Stambaughs I've had built, Chris strongly suggested ABM bridges- I went w/that & have had no issues whatsoever.
