Convertible Bridge and Saddle for Precise Tone Shaping: Vintage Plus Bridge
Strings can also be set to the tail end of the bridge. The BB734A comes equipped with a convertible saddle that can be adjusted to 2 different angles for more precise tonal shaping and feel. The rounder side of the saddle gives a slightly softer sound, while the more angled area produces a slightly tighter one.
The brass saddle of the Vintage Plus Bridge delivers a slightly deeper low-end, and the steel bridge plate offers a brighter tone. All screws and springs are made of stainless steel to guard against corrosion.
*Long-scale strings are recommended when stringing through the bridge and super long-scale strings are recommended when stringing through the body.
The new series features a 5-ply maple and mahogany laminated neck, in a bolt-on design. This durable construction resists warping and twisting.
New Neck Shape
The New BB models feature a slightly thinner neck than previous BB basses, improving playability and feel for both modern and traditional players.
Lighter weight tuners offer a better balance and complement the overall feel of the lighter body.
