Hipshot Baby Grand bridge??

posted Apr 30, 2014 19:18:19 by RussGreer
Anybody used/heard of these? Look interesting enough... cant tell if the body has to just have 2 post holes or all 4 are covered by the bridge. Their website says it retrofits on gibson style guitars though

well for that baby I'd go over many bridges....

It looks to be a simple locking-post bridge with aa tailpiece attached, looks nice, surely high quality.

Yes it does look to be of high quality.

Much cheaper on Reverb: https://reverb.com/item/45637-hipshot-6-string-baby-grand-43100b-bridge-black?gclid=CIS3x4PAjL4CFS5nOgodcy8A6w

I hate to say this makes me want another guitar... Dang you guys for putting ideas in my head!

Also, it only takes up two mounts. So if you've got a ABR-1 and a stoptail you will have two posts left open.

This would be a direct replacement onto something like a PRS wrap around though.

Honestly if Maggie from HiHamusic doesn't pull through on my current order with her, I'll get my money back and order up a wrap around PRS style from Cathy just for this bridge.

So, talking with Cathy now...

This guitar very well may be my swan song with Chinese guitars. I said I'd stop after my last order, but...

That bridge on a guitar in this finish? Must have. Also going to see if they can do a flamed maple neck.

that is tempting...though I already have blue guitars, so green should be my next go to.
keep us posted about this guitar ChibsonsandMore! :)
