Direct-Fit Top Quality Machined Brass Tone Bar
Gloucester, Mass. (May 3, 2019) — After years of innovation in improving tone and overall quality of many guitar components, KGC has a new and very unique add-on upgrade for electric guitars with 6-saddle tremolo and hardtail bridges. The Patent Pending Fat Bottom® is a machined brass bar designed to add mass to the bridge of the guitar. Many of today’s OEM bridges are made of thin, stamped metal – adding the Fat Bottom increases resonance, sustain, stability and improves tone. The Fat Bottom® also gives the player a comfortable place to rest the palm and, on tremolo bridges, allows the user to simply push on the bar with the palm for a unique fluttering vibrato sound.
CNC machined to exact specs and designed to fit as a direct extension of your OEM bridge plate. Matching radius on each edge, a smooth beveled and brushed finish allows the player a comfortable surface for their hand and gives the guitar a custom look of quality craftsmanship and a boutique aesthetic.
Installation is extremely easy and requires no permanent modifications to the guitar. The Fat Bottom® installs using the existing hardware that attaches the saddles to the bridge plate. Simply remove the saddle intonation screws and re-attach them through the holes in the Fat Bottom®.
There are two models of Fat Bottom® currently available directly through KillerGuitar.com – Vintage (2-7/32” String Spacing) and Narrow (2-1/16” String Spacing). Introductory Retail Price of $49.95 each includes one machined brass Fat Bottom® and installation instructions. For Dealer Inquiries, please contact Business Manager Rick Peek at
