    Yes... It will line up perfectly with your string thru Fender.

    That's what it was designed for. :) Just don't go getting a BA2. ^_^

    Not sure what you're asking. BAIII has 7 holes. 3 for screws, 4 for string-thru, and will not lineup with Fender 5-hole mounting.

    I think you may be incorrect here... Badass II is specifically designed to replace a Fender. The Badass III is for string through body basses.

    I put a BadassIII on an American Standard Jazz with the string through bridge. It fit perfectly! Both use 3 mounting screws.

    The BadassIII will not work with a vintage style 5 mounting screw bridge without some plugging and redrilling.

    I think the op is confusing us by saying the string through has 5 mounting holes. They do not.

    True. But it does line up with the 'modern' Fender string through bridge.
