Vintage style, modern stability

By Hendrix

from Jacksonville, Florida

Comments about Hipshot 6-String US Contour Tremolo Guitar Bridge:

I had a guitar custom made with this trem set up to do dips only. This thing is the smoothest trem I have ever played (and I've played them all). Sustain is impressive, it puts many Les Pauls to shame. My only problem with it is that the bar cannot be tightened, so it swings around slopily. Also, I have to be careful onstage not to jump around too much withour risking the bar flying out of the socket. Short of that, though, this is easily the best non-locking trem that I have ever seen.

      I would have given 5 stars if installing would have been easier on my American Strat. Had to pull the bushings and put hip shots in which was a little scary!

          Much better than the original Fender trem I had on my Strat. A little reroute but I have it set so I can not only dive down but it also goes up a minor third. My guitar stays in tune with no issues what so ever.

          Fit and finish is great, except...

          Comments about Hipshot 6-String US Contour Tremolo Guitar Bridge:

          The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 stars is in the second paragraph.
          This review is based solely on the appearance of the unit, and Guitar Center's service following purchase. I have not yet installed the unit.
          The appearance of the bridge unit is beautiful! I have the gold finish, and it seems to match any other "gold" hardware that I've purchased in the past. Very bright and very shiny. Finish on the bridge is well done. Build quality appears to be very good. It includes a new tremolo claw, springs, claw-mounting screws, posts and bushings, tremolo arm, and a couple of allen wrenches for adjustments. The tremolo arm fits very snugly into it's socket, and stays in place very well. As some have mentioned, there's an adjustment screw for the arm, but mine came already dialed in quite well.
          Now, for the reason the unit loses one star: The tip of the tremolo arm (under the plastic cap) is completely uncoated, bare metal. Granted, for most players this may not be an issue. However, for aesthetic reasons, I prefer to remove the plastic tip. I'm not sure how to solve this yet. I don't like the idea of paying to have the tip coated to match the rest, but cutting it off doesn't seem like a good solution either, as I'll still have an uncoated tip, albeit smaller. This was a rather rude surprise considering the beauty and attention to detail found throughout the rest of the unit. I don't know if mine is a mistake, or if all Hipshot trem arms are finished this way.

          Guitar Center's service following purchase was great! Quick order acknowledgement with tracking info; proper payment processing; reasonably quick shipping (non-expedited). No problems with GC service.
