- - Saddle Upgrade
|WiflB ||08-30-2013 06:27 AM |
I was thinking of replacing the stock saddle that came with my Ibanez BTB300 but I wanted to clear up a few things: will any saddle fit? - how will I know which ones will or won't?

Are you talking about saddles on the bridge or the nut?
The entire bridge?
Lets get the terminology right so we are all on the same page. ;)

+1, and if you're talking about the saddles, the individual pieces on the bridge that the strings rest on, then likely no, nothing else will fit except the ones made for that bridge.

Sorry for the terminology slip up, ive always used the word saddle to mean the bridge. I was reffering to the bridge on my bass, for example would I be able to fit a badass ii bridge to my ibanez? Cheers

It's nothing more than metal screwed to wood, so yes of course you can do it. Although there will likely be some filling of existing holes and drilling new mounting holes. Badass are designed to replace Fender bridges so the screw positions don't often fit other brands directly.
String spacing is the only other critical consideration but the BA II allows custom spacing.
There is absolutely no reason on earth to actually do it except that you totally dismantled the bridge in the past and have lost pieces from it and now you want to put it back together and are hooped. There is nothing to gain by doing this. The Ibanez bridge is a perfectly fine piece of hardware and the badass offers no advantage over it.

and on top of that, the badass likely has way wider spacing than typical skinny ibanez basses.

The BTB300 has 19mm string spacing just like a Fender.
No reason to replace rail bridges, they are great.

I agree. No reason besides being broken to replace that bridge.
