Upgrade to Babicz for Full Contact
The Babicz Full Contact Hardware system is available on all applicable Bass Collection models as either standard issue or as an optional upgrade.
As the name implies, this revolutionary new approach to bridge technology ensures "full contact" between the vibrating string and the body of the instrument, maximising sustain and tonal response.
Courtesy of its patented "eCam" saddle technology, the Babicz design also provides enhanced stability and fully lockable, precision adjustment for string height and intonation.
Alternatively, you can choose to upgrade your brand new Bass Collection instrument with a classic Leo Quan Badass Bass II or hyper-modern Hipshot KickAss™ hi-mass bridge.
The Personal Touch
All Bass Collection instruments are re-strung and set up prior to despatch by Chris Ward, long serving Bass Centre guitar tech for all of our 36 years... he's getting quite good by now!
Accordingly, you can choose which gauge and type of Elites Strings you prefer, and specify set-up requirements (please use the "Customer Comments" field when you check out).
