4 & 5 String Bass Tremolo Bridge Options

Front Rout

Back Rout

Hipshot tremolo routing for 4 & 5 string bass. Notice that these routs are symetrical. They work both right and left handed - as do the tremolos themselves. Holes are predrilled for studs, spring claw, ground wire and coverplate. The coverplate is the Strat® tremolo cover, you can find them in our pickguard section

For the tremolo to be fully functional, the neck pocket must be slightly angled or shimmed.

Add $20 for this custom work.
