    This is a Fender Modern Player Jazz Bass that I'm considering purchasing. I found it for $250 ($300 after tax and shipping).

    Can anybody identify the bridge?

    Is the bridge considered an upgrade from the stock bridge and do you feel it's an overall good purchase for the price?

    I don't love the double-jazz pickup thing, but that's my personal taste. That bridge looks like a Schaller Roller (or copy) which some would consider an upgrade. Regardless, for $300, if you hesitate too long, it'll be gone.

    I am not positive, but it looks like a new Fender "high mass" bridge that probably came with the bass stock.

    Fairly certain its not the fender high mass bridge. The high mass that comes on the modern player has brass saddles
