BIRTH OF A BADASS

Back in 1972, musician, innovator, and luthier Glen Quan saw the need for higher-quality guitar and bass bridges. With help from Leo Malliari of Leo’s Music in Oakland, CA, the first “Badass” bridges were born. “Leo Quan Badass” bridges were manufactured from a high-density Zinc alloy and offered improved attack, sustain and note-clarity. Badass® bridges quickly gained a following with artists looking to upgrade their Fender® basses and were ultimately featured on several Fender artist signature models. Through the ‘80’s, BC Rich, Spector and Kramer featured Badass bridges as original equipment on their instruments and artist acceptance continued to grow. Today, Badass is known worldwide as the standard for quality replacement bridges that will enhance the tone, playability and appearance of your guitar or bass.

BADASS I™

The original Badass® bass bridge! Commonly referred to as “the Badass I”, this model was ahead of its time in that it accommodated both wide and narrow string-spacings and offered enough saddle travel for very precise intonation. Its higher profile was well suited for set-neck Basses. Coupled with the enhanced sonic characteristics of high-density Zinc alloy, these features made this bridge a popular choice with builders like BC Rich, Spector and Kramer.

Features
  • High-density Zinc alloy offers increased attack and sustain.
  • Typically used with pitched (angled) necks that require a taller bridge. 
  • Un-grooved saddles allow you to set narrow or wide string spacing.  String spacing can range from 2" to 2-5/8".
  • Top-loading bridge only.
  • Color-matched mounting screws and height-adjustment Allen wrench included.
  • Ships in branded white mailer box.
