    Hello everyone !

    I know that maybe this question was made many many time, and I don't want to bore anyone, but really I'm very confused about this question.

    I'v completed my order for a new Sabre Guitars Ghost, but I'm stuck whit bridge selection. Hipshot, Schaller-Hannes or ABM ?

    I know that all are amazing crafted and work well, but, what is better ?

    I have the ABM single saddle bridge and work fantastic, but the GAS is high in me and I want to change. Some of my friends say that the Hipshot is the best, some other say the Hannes one is better eccecc.

    What do you guys think about ?

    I personally prefer the Hipshot, but in the end it's your decision

    I'm planning an 8 string build soon and I'm going with hipshot cuz I know they're fairly cheap compared to some other options and I've seen them a lot around here. But If I had the money I'd probably get the other one cuz it looks comfortable and different. But it looks like those only come in 6's so...

    When an option, I'd always go with ABM. I've used tons of different hardware from various makers and ABM still knocks me away when it comes to the quality. It's hard to describe really.

    That being said, Schaller and Hipshot make great stuff. This is really going to come down to what you find more comfortable under your hand.

    The point is that I'v never tried an Hipshot or an Hannes one. I only have an ABM and i found amazing !

    If I choose Hipshot is only beacause is smaller than Hannes

    I've looked one on many luthier guitar, but also the Hipshot and ABM one..

    Possible that the Hannes is new compared to the other two ?

    Hipshot is always a winner for me. It's solid as a rock, super sexy, and unlike the schaller, won't break my wallet...

    Schaller-Hannes @ LMII = $135 (not as bad as I remember, admittedly)

    Hipshot from their site = $95

    Eh.

    I think that Hipshot will be perfect for my guitar 'cause is smaller. Maybe is only my mindblowing eh..
