Leo Quan

Leo Quan manufacturers some of the highest quality and well respected bass guitar bridges in the industry. Originally created in and available in the 1970's the Leo Quan bass bridge was designed and created by guitar/bass technician, and entrepreneur Glen Quan. The original models were crude by design and built from diecast zinc. Later models were made from a high quality zinc alloy and more finely milled for a higher quality design. These bridges have become one of the most highly sought out peice of hardware for the bass guitar and many Fender Precision and Jazz Bass owners utilize the Leo Quan Bridge as their first upgrade. As of late, Leo Quan Bridges have been unavailable in all models and there does not appear to be a revival on production currently.

We have created a Leo Quan Comparison Chart to assist you in finding a suitable alternative to your 4 or 5 String bass guitar. Please see below for more information on the Leo Quan replacement options.
