Bridge for 76 Precision
So I recently acquired a 76 p-bass with a Badass II installed. Sadly, the seller did not have the original bridge, the covers or the case, but everything else is original. The bass is in very good condition with very slight buckle rash a bit bigger than a quarter that does not reach the wood. There are a couple of cracks in the finish that extend for several inches along the grain on the back and some light checking and a ding on the upper edge of the back contour. Having looked at lots of pictures of 76 p-basses, I've not seen many in similarly good condition.
The BAII was on it for a number of years, but thankfully the finish underneath is not too different from the rest of the nicely mellowed Natural finish. I already switched the BAII to my MIM P and put the bent metal bridge on the 76. Looks much better, and (sorry BA fans) sounds much better.
The MIM bridge is a short term solution. My objective is to have a stock look, so ideally I would like to put a correct era Fender bridge on there, but I wouldn't know where to find one. Any suggestions for a more suitable replacement? Suggestions on the Fender forum point to Gotoh. Looking at the Gotoh site, the Standard Series looks to be going for the vintage style. The 201 is a high mass version like you'd find on a modern p-bass. The 203 is closer to what I'm looking for, but it has extra mounting holes that I don't like. Are there any better options?
