Graph Tech And Hipshot Create HIPSHOT/GHOST Bass Bridge

November 28, 2005

The Graph Tech GHOST system produces an extremely balanced, string to string, accurate sound for both acoustic tones and MIDI tracking on any electric bass guitar.

"We're excited to be collaborating with Dave Borisoff and his crew at HIPSHOT to bring this innovation to individual players and the industry," states Dave Dunwoodie, President of Graph Tech. "Hipshot bridges are precision milled, not casted, and make for an incredibly accurate and tight bass bridge."

Graph Tech's patented String Saver™ saddles are at the heart of each GHOST system. Each saddle is custom engineered with a piezo crystal and then plugged into the Acousti-Phonic preamp, which results in a warm, realistic studio-quality acoustic sound that metal saddles cannot replicate. The Hexpander preamp, featuring a proprietary harmonic dampening system for the most accurate, fastest tracking possible, simply plugs into the Acousti-Phonic preamp with a 13-pin Hexaphonic output that enables the guitar to control Roland virtual guitar processors or act as an input source for the many different MIDI converters available today.
