These Hipshot A Style Bridges feature Graphtech® Ghost® saddles. These can be used in combination with magnetic pickups or without. The piezo version of the A style bridge is generally the same, with the exception of a slot in the bass plate for the piezo wire to pass through as well as a differently styled saddle.
Graphech Ghost loaded piezo pickups let you get acoustic tone from your bass when installed independently or used in conjunction with a Piezo Buffer circuit to bring the output to the correct level and incorporate magnetic pickups.
Custom-engineered piezo crystals are encapsulated in a set of Graph Tech's patented String Saver saddles. The ghost Saddle Pickups have a natural compression effect, so you can play as hard as you want without overloading the input channel or experiencing the dreaded piezo "quack". Pickups are individually calibrated, and sets are precision-balanced, so you get even string-to-string output.
A buffer is used to get the piezo signal to the correct level.
A Style bridges are available in two different material constuctions: Brass and Aluminum. Aluminum is available Satin, Chrome, and Black Finishes. Brass is available in Chrome, Black, and Gold. These bridges are available in the following spacings:
