BRIDGE OPTIONS

HIPSHOT US CONTOUR TREMOLO

Here's what Hipshot say:

"The Hipshot US Contour bridge is unlike any tremolo system out there. Hardened steel pivot pins inserted into a machined brass top plate give the US Contour a bell like tonal quality and silky smooth whammy action! Coupled with a solid machined steel tremolo block, the US Contour can achieve tremendous sustain and volume."

We tend to agree with them on this one, which is why we have selected it for our Custom series. It is one of the smoothest tremolos on the market. It's high quality and extremely comfortable under the hand.

HIPSHOT US CONTOUR

Here's what Hipshot say:

"The Hipshot Fixed Bridge is the ultimate marriage of performance, beauty and ergonomics. Each bridge is hand polished for a smooth, comfortable feel under your palm. The stainless steel saddles have a crisp string relief edge, eliminating dull tones. The side walls lock your saddles in place no matter how hard you thrash."

  • Machined, solid brass base plate with side walls
  • Stainless steel saddles maximise sustain and tonality.
  • String through body design for solid down pressure on bridge and saddles.

Again, this is a great bridge. It is easy to get the perfect set-up and perfect intonation, it's comfortable and it looks fantastic. What more could you want.

 

TUNER OPTIONS

HIPSHOT CLASSIC TUNER

Here's what Hipshot say:

"If you're a fan of the straight traditional buttoned up look, our Classic Closed Guitar Tuner has you covered. Very smooth and precise action will have you wondering how you ever kept your guitar in tune without it.

  • 15:1 gear ratio for finer tuning"

 

These are a great classic tuner design. They are high quality and have great tuning stability. Not much else needs to be said.

HIPSHOT CLOSED GRIP-LOCK TUNER

Here's what Hipshot say:

"The ultimate in security and ease of setup, our Grip-Lock™ tuning machines remove the labor of string changes while improving your tuning stability. Simply pull the string through the hole and tighten the thumbwheel. A small pin inside the string post will grip your string and lock it in place. Spend more time playing and less time playing out of tune!

  • 15:1 gear ratio for finer tuning"

A great quality locking tuner, offers extremely quick string changes and tuning stability. We would recommend these in conjunction with a tremolo.
