This was discussed in another thread related to the Babicz Full Contact Telecaster Bridge but I thought it deserved some comment in the Bass Place Forum as well since this is where these bridges really shine. I've posted an email from a good friend who is a pro player and recording engineer about his experience with them which is what encouraged me to install them on my Jazz and Precision Basses. If anyone has been consider installing one on their bass hopefully this will answer some questions and lend some encouragement. I'm very pleased with the results I'm getting from installing them on mine. Originally Posted by soulman969 View Post Thanks for the tip on pricing.

From all that I can see the only real drawback is the high price but since my basses were bought right to begin with I have no problem treating them to upgraded bridges to go along with their upgraded pickups. Quoting myself here I know but I wanted to report back on the Babicz Bass Bridges. I managed to get lucky and pickup a couple for under $100 to install on my Jazz and Precision Basses and I can honestly say now from personal experience that what my friend commented on in his email to me is spot on. Hi Paul: I was doing a search for Babicz and turned up a current thread on TDPRI. Saw you posted, so thought I'd pass along a note on the subject. On bass, they absolutely kill. My brother has used them, too, replacing Hipshot and other units. Pricey, they are! Eminently better sustain, clarity and punch. Not subtle. You'd have to be a corpse not to notice. That's how I felt when I replaced the standard bridge on my Fretless Jazz Bass, anyway. In terms of the Teles, it's similarly positive on solid-bodies. I am really comfortable recommending them. On Thinlines, they contribute a thin, unpleasant characteristic. Underwhelming. They are definitely "difference makers" both in tonality and playability. Both basses have a "tauter" feel to them and the action is a whisper above the frets low with zero buzz. The aluminum bass plate and cams impart a brighter tonality with more punch. It's quite noticeable on both but even more so on the PBass with a set of old school LaBella flats. The install was a snap and though it took a few minutes to get used to the cam system adjustments after that the setup and intonation was a breeze. Once that's done you can lock everything into place and not have a need to redo it with every string change. I realize it's all a matter of personal preference but in this case Jeff Babicz has seemed to have "built the better mousetrap".
