    Got a question for anyone who can help. Just bought a 70's Fender P-Bass Re-issue and was wondering if I should replace the bridge right off the bat with a Leo Quan Badass 2 bridge or should I just leave it as is? Also, any input on new pickups as well would be greatly appreciated.

    The stock bridge will do the job.

    Play the bass for a good long time so you know what it really sounds like before contemplating any changes, especially something as expensive and possibly as pointless as changing the bridge.

    Only make changes with specific, operationally defined goals in mind.

    If you're considering any change, I recommend the Babicz.
    I have 2 Fender basses and would have been totally happy
    with the stock bridges, but the saddles work themselves down,
    so I replaced them with Babicz brand, which lock the saddles down.
    Awesome product.
