The impact of a bridge on the performance of a bass guitar is something that people too often underestimate. In fact, the bridge is key to many aspects of tone and Michael Kelly gave it the full respect that it deserves. You will see that they used a solid molded bridge with tight slots for each fully-adjustable saddle, a big enhancement on its own. They, however, took that further. Under that bridge is an aluminum tone block. Michael Kelly adds that hidden block to add sustain and attack. Since it is aluminum, it does not add weight to the bass, but has a similar sonic impact to using a heavy bridge. They call this bridge-and-internal-block combination the MK Stealth Attack Bridge System.
In addition to the upgraded neck and Stealth Attack Bridge System, this guitar has Michael Kelly's Element Active Circuit electronics, but they have changed it up a little by utilizing a push/pull volume pot to switch from active to passive modes. They have also added a pickup blend knob in place of the 3 way toggle switch, giving you loads more control over your tones. Add to that separate bass and treble controls, and Rockfield 5SW pickups that are specially voiced for the Element basses, and you have a super comfortable, lightweight, highly playable and fully controlled tone monster.
Stealth Attack Bridge System
Michael Kelly combines an upgraded die-cast bridge with a hidden aluminum tone block creating the Stealth Attack Bridge System. The combination delivers increased sonic performance including added sustain and attack.
