OK, but room for improvement

06.06.2016
There will be very subtle differences in tone between this bridge and whatever you have now unless your current bridge is terrible.

Plus: This bridge looks bling - fitting one screams "pimped bass". The main reason I bought a Babicz is that there are no grub screws to stick into your hand when you are playing / damping down at the bridge. (I could have achieved this with my old bridge by filing down the blunt ends of the grub screws.) The cam action string height setting is a breeze. On my Yamaha BB414 I could fit this bridge without any drilling - the BB414 factory bridge shares the same drill pattern and placement as the Babicz - which is the same as the Fenders, I believe. The string spacing is also perfect for my BB414.

Minus: My Yamaha's earth wire contact is off to the side between the D & G strings. This bridge is made from anodised aluminium and has a contact area on the back in the middle. To make earth contact in any other place you will need to get rid of the anodising at the contact point. I used a milling machine to skim off a 0.1mm deep patch between D & G. A file / sandpaper could be used instead - messier. This bridge is no good for through-hole basses like the Yamaha BB424. They need to supply several different lengths of spring, not just 2 short-ish and 2 long-ish.

Improve playability and sound in one easy upgrade

08.06.2016
I decided that I needed to start a project with my Squier Standard Precision bass and the Babicz bridge was one of the first components I chose to replace.

Here's the rub - it slots straight in as a direct replacement. A very easy DIY upgrade for most Fenderesque Jazz/Precision basses (do check before buying).

What do you get? Well, a far punchier tone, much broader scale of adjustment and a serious look.

This bridge is not cheap for what it is, but it is very well crafted. It will last a long time. It's fairly light, also. Far lighter than the bridge it replaced, anyway. It feels like a high quality product.

Adjusting the intonation is a bit of a faf, but that's the only minor bad point I can think off. The action adjustment is a experience to behold. It's lovely. Over-engineered, but I like that in a 'thing'. I might sound a little geeky, but the smoothness of the saddle hight adjustment is something I could play with for hours. It all adjusts with tiny allen keys.

If you want to give your bass a cool look, better sound and the feel of a far more expensive bass, I would definitely recommend this product.
