Badass is a trade name of Leo Quan, a manufacturer of bridges for guitars and basses. It was used on the Martin EB18 electric bass and is a replacement bridge on the Fender Precision Bass.


Leo Quan "Badass" began in 1972 in the workshops of Glen Quan, musician, collector of fine instruments, guitar repairman and stringed instrument restorer. Glen saw a need for a tunable bridge for his personal stage guitars and began building bridges for his own use. Other performers asked him to build these bridges for their instruments, and eventually, the bridges would become the standard for the guitar and bass industry.

Popularity among guitarists

Jimmy Page used a Badass bridge on his Danelectro which was used for songs such as "Kashmir" and "White Summer/Black Mountain Side".
