    Is the string spacing of a Fender P the same as a Fender J? I need to know if I can put a BAII bridge from a Geddy Lee Jazz on a Mexi Fender P bass Standard and have the strings line up with the pole pieces on the pickup.
  2. BAII's are made for both P and J basses. Correct me if I'm wrong but the BAII's Fender installs have the saddles with multiple string grooves. You shouldn't have any problems if that is the case. If the grooves in the saddles were filed specifically for the J bass then you might have a problem.
