I want to replace the bridge on my mim fender fretless jazz.
Don't want to spend a load of money and I've seen gotoh bridges around 45 bucks and a hagstrom full contact for about the same.
Does anyone know if either of these would be ok and would they be a direct replacement fit?
Would appreciate any thoughts.
Is it a 3 or 5 hole mount?
I'll be the first to ask.....:D
What's wrong with the existing bridge? What are you trying to improve?
Mickey's question is a good one.
As far as the Gotoh: it should align perfectly with your existing screw holes, and it looks much nicer than stock and the slots the screw ends ride in do a great job of keeping the saddles from moving. Is it any better than stock? I don't know, but it has the features I just described.
I don't know the Hagstrom bridge at all, but it's interesting that it has exactly the same name as the very different and much more expensive Babicz Full Contact bridge. It's also not particularly confidence inspiring that a guy on ebay has 8 of them listed for $9.99 apiece BIN out of China.
Ok.so all it took was a new set of flat wounds and a decent setup.
Just needed someone with a bit of experience to show me the way.
Thanks for the comments.
I've said it before and I will say it again - if you are talking about the Gotoh 201 bridge, the strings will not line up perfectly with the pickup pole pieces. It's not a big deal sonically but if you are OCD, it may bug you.
