I am in the planning stages about what I want to do to mine.
I think my Wishbass is #1392!
1392?! Talk about coincidence haha
The bridge added a bit of stability to intonation, but I definitely depends on the bridge when it comes to tone. I feel like the fender style bridge mellowed it out A LOT but the Badass sounds a lot like the original corian bridge, I think. It's been so long since I played with the corian so I can't exactly remember and I may be very wrong
But due to intonation issues, I highly recommend adding an adjustable bridge and then use your EQ to readjust tone. Also, I would definitely suggest adding a tone knob to any wishbass, it goes against Steve's philosophy of having as little metal as possible in the bass but that tone knob will make your bass a million times more versatile. I use a 500k stacked pot from Warmoth with a .1 capacitor from radio shack.
