Babicz for my Gibson SG Re-Issue Bass
Dutchy, 22.02.2018
I purchased the Babicz Full Contact bridge for my Gibson SG bass as a direct replacement. It fitted perfectly. However, when restringing the guitar the bridge started lift up as the tautness of the strings tilted the bridge. This was due to the change in leverage made by the extended length of the bridge beyond the anchor points fixed in the guitar body. These original brass inserts were a friction fit and in my Bass they were not really a tight fit. However, I took the guitar to my local luthier, which just happens to be my brother. After some thought and discussing over coffee, we decided to epoxy resin the brass inserts back into the guitar body. After 24 hours we refitted the Babicz bridge and restrung the Bass with new strings and Hey Presto, one Thunderous Bass was born.
The moral of the story is to ensure all modifications are carried out by a Professional luthier.
Thank you Thomann, this bridge has made a huge difference to the sound of my Gibson.

It has changed the whole instrument playability to the best
Iakovos K, 27.10.2019
It really changed the game, it's so easy to play this instrument now. The stock demanded more power in the playing, so this one makes it piece of cake, very high quality components, fully adjustable, my luthier was surprised at how many adjustable functionalities it had inside. 10/10 It also changes the sound of the bridge pickup to a brighter one.

Le chevalet qui devrait être monté sur toute Gibson!
FJJLD, 06.08.2020
Remplaçant idéal pour le piètre chevalet Gibson d'origine à 3 points!
Léger et costaud, il offre un full contact avec le corps de la basse et s'applique exactement / parfaitement aux 3 trous de vis de l'emplacement du chevalet d'origine.
Et c'est le jour et la nuit!
Ma basse Gibson sonne maintenant de façon uniforme et nickel grâce au réglage micro-poil et individuel de chaque corde (hauteur et intonation), ce que ne permet pas le chevalet Gibson: réglage approximatif des 3 vis de la pièce complète.
Le Babicz permet aussi de bloquer et de garder chaque réglage de hauteur et d'intonation par corde (lors de nettoyage ou de changement de cordes, par exemple), ce qui change des sillets flottants et mobiles du chevalet Gibson: bougez une corde et vous devez refaire tout le réglage...
Dernière et importante observation: la partie embobinée (métal ou fil, juste après la boule/tête métallique) de chaque corde ne repose plus (en partie ou non) sur le sillet du chevalet (encore un bémol pour la pièce Gibson!) et ceci a un impact direct sur la qualité et justesse du son et de l'intonation de vos cordes jouées.
Bref, ce Bridge Babicz (ou équivalent Hipshot) devrait être le modèle monté systématiquement sur toute guitare ou basse Gibson!

Unbedingt empfehlenswert
frank806, 31.01.2020
Ich nutze die Brücke auf meinem Epiphone EB-0 Bass. Bei der original verbauten Brücke hat mich die Ungenauigkeit gestört.

Die Verarbeitung ist makellos, Das Teil macht optisch und haptisch einen sehr hochwertigen Eindruck.

Der Einbau ist problemlos und kinderleicht, es wird nur ein großer Schraubenzieher benötigt.

Die Babicz Brücke lässt sich mit dem mitgelieferten Werkzeug (Inbusschlüssel) einfach und präzise justieren. Bei der alten originalen Brücke hat sich alles beim Stimmen der Saiten wieder geringfügig verstellt (weil die einzelnen Reiter sehr locker auf der Brücke sitzen) , bei der Babicz Brücke ist dies nicht der Fall. Alles sitzt fest, nach der Justage wird alles mit dem Inbusschlüssel fest arretiert.

Auch die Saitenlage lässt sich mit der Babicz Brücke flacher einstellen als mit dem Original. Eine höhere Saitenlage kann mit dem beigelegten Zwischenstück auch realisiert werden.

Fazit:
Es lohnt sich meiner Meinung nach auch für einen günstigeren Bass, wie meinen Epiphone EB-0, diese Brücke anzuschaffen, da sich auch klanglich das Instrument dadurch aufwerten lässt.
Der Preis ist für die gebotene Qualität angemessen.
Es gibt wirklich nichts negatives zu diesem Produkt zu sagen
