5 String Bass Bridge - Dual Loading

Designed as a replacement or upgrade for five string bass guitar players, our high quality 5 string bass bridge is made from robust materials for high quality performance time and time again. It's dual loading, which means you can top load it or string thru depending on your process.

Quality Construction

This bridge includes the screws that mount it to the body, ensuring a tight fit. This means you'll get maximum string vibration transfer for tip top bass guitar tone. Brass saddles give you incredible intonation and sustain, being one of the best materials for ensuring a warmth of tone and great clarity.

Top Loading

When top loading, the strings are top mounted to the back of the bridge, which means a slightly lesser string tension than that of a through body. This will make the guitar sound more resonant and lively, improving the overall tone of your bass guitar.

String Thru

When using a string thru bass bridge, you'll have increased tension versus that of a top loading bridge, which some players prefer as it gives you a more stable playing platform, particularly when you're plucking with your fingers. It really comes down to personal preference which you prefer, as both will sound equally great, just different.

The individually intonatable saddles run in channels to prevent sideways movement from affecting your tone, making this a fantastic upgrade for any bass guitar.

5 String Bass bridge - Dual Load 17mm string spacing

Well made and finished, the only criticism would be in regard to the very limited amount of string height adjustment. It would help if some taller saddles were included. Obviously with a bolt on neck the angle can be adjusted to compensate but not with a through neck which would require packers under the bridge.
