Wraparound bridge that’ll enhance the tone, playability and appearance of your instrument.

Originally designed as a direct replacement for Gibson “wraparound” bridges, the Allparts Leo Quan Badass Wraparound guitar bridge offers enhanced attack and sustain, and the ability to intonate each string individually. Famously employed by Jimmy Page, Malcolm Young, Tony Iommi, Keith Richards, and Paul Reed Smith, the Badass Wraparound became “the bridge” for players looking to improve their tone and tuning-accuracy. Now upgraded with premium locking studs, the Badass Wraparound will enhance the performance of any Les Paul Junior, Les Paul Special, Melody Maker or similar guitar.

Back in 1972, musician, innovator, and luthier Glen Quan saw the need for higher-quality guitar and bass bridges. With help from Leo Malliari of Leo’s Music in Oakland, California, the first “Badass” bridges were born. “Leo Quan Badass” bridges were manufactured from a high-density zinc alloy and offered improved attack, sustain and note-clarity. Badass bridges quickly gained a following with artists looking to upgrade their Fender basses and were ultimately featured on several Fender artist signature models. Through the ‘80s, B.C. Rich, Spector and Kramer featured Badass bridges as original equipment on their instruments and artist acceptance continued to grow. Today, Badass is known worldwide as the standard for quality replacement hardware that will enhance the tone, playability and appearance of your guitar or bass.

Features include 5/16"-24 SAE studs for use with Gibson models and other U.S.-made brands and slotted, individual string saddles to ensure accurate intonation. Advanced Plating color-matched locking posts eliminate “bridge tip” and enhance resonance and sustain, while the Allen wrench stud height adjustment reduces the risk of scratching the body during adjustment.
