Weird, I'm sure that was $7K as well for that guitar hahaha, I have been having a problem getting hipshot parts where I work, maybe that is why?No, pretty sure it's the same bridge my Indo SLAT has on it. It's fine functionally, I guess. Hipshots look and feel a little better.
Looks like it’s just the same bridge that they used on B7s—which is disappointing in the sense that’s it’s not a Floyd, but since there’s nothing remotely special about a Hipshot, it’s no worse than that either.
If I don't get a Floyd on a guitar I like the Hipshot bridges. Not for any functional reason, it's just a standard bridge. But I like the way a Hipshot feels while playing.
I remember Hipshot blowing up on SSO because of the aesthetics. As in, the shoulders of the bridge look cooler than the flat-plate fender style bridges.
Not saying that Hipshot stuff is the absolute best thing out there, but they are a solid product, and they nail the aesthetics, and I like that they're made in the US for an okay/fair price.
