Hipshot 5 A Style Bridge Replacement for Fender Roscoe Beck 5 String Gotoh
By J Rubel from on 1/10/2017
 
The stock Gotoh bridge on my Fender Roscoe Beck 5 string bass was literally crumbling apart. Little chunks just fell off it and intonation was not working anymore. Finding an original replacement for the original bridge was next to impossible. Plus, I didn't love it anyway. Plan to keep this bass forever so moving away from stock wasn't the end of the world. I'm more into function. So with Max and the gang's help here at BBG, the Hipshot style A 5 bridge was decided on. .750 was used. While it doesn't completely cover the old bridge holes, I don't care. Once I made the change over to the new bridge it was instantaneously noticeable. I'm a ecstatic bassist once again! After a couple gigs I also decided to have the bass run through a PLEK machine too at 13th Street Guitars in Huntington Beach, CA. Another massive difference in sustain, even better intonation and feel. It's like I have a whole new bass again! I would totally buy this Hipshot bridge again.

Used this bridge on several basses, and they always work great. Its nice to be able to adjust the string spacing; you don't realize it matters until you have the option to change it!

Adjustable string spacing allows for perfect alignment with pickup pole pieces. Extremely well made. Makes my fretless much more punchy.

Perfect Replacement

Ordered this as a repalcement bridge for my '91 Modulus Q5. Installation required drilling new holes for the mounting screws, so make sure you know what you're doing and proceed with caution, or have a profesional take care of the install. Over all I am very pleased with the bridge. The look and feel are fantastic, and it has improved the tone dramatically. Best Bass Gear is awesome. Always great service.
