Badass is a trade name of Leo Quan, a manufacturer of bridges for guitars and basses. Badass bridges (used on the Martin EB18 electric bass and a replacement bridge on the Fender Precision Bass) feature individually adjustable saddles, which allows for "extremely accurate intonation adjustments."[2] The Badass came on the market in the 1970s,[3] and was made by entrepreneur and guitar repairman Glen Quan.[4] The first Badass bridges were built from diecast zinc and were considered somewhat rough;[5] later models were made from a high-density zinc alloy and more finely milled.[6]
