......and I'd swear that the bass sounds a bit better now that I swapped out the Badass II bridge for a Fender '75 bridge. The notes seem to have a fuller tone and sustain better. Perhaps the string angle coming off the back of the bridge to the saddles is better than with the Badass II where the strings tended to lay flatter. So, I basically conducted an A/B test by doing this and I like the results of the stock Fender bridge vs the Badass II and wanted to share the findings... That's all... Carry on.
