The '76 Precision I recently acquired unfortunately came with a Badass II bridge on it and did not have the original. The good news is I took the bridge off tonight to see what it looked like underneath, and low and behold the finish is absolutely perfect and you would never know it was installed. I have the bass for sale right now, but am having second thoughts about parting with it...and if there are no takers I would really like to get it back to sounding (and looking) as close to a classic Precision bass as I can. Aside from the BAII bridge and Dimarzio pup, everything else is original including the pots, pickguard, tuners, cap, knobs, etc. (it also didn't come with the bridge & pup cover or the thumb rest.) SOomy question is which bridge should I install? Do I scour Ebay and pay a small fortune for an original mid 70's bridge, or should I just pick up the Fender '75 RI bridge (part # 0055257000), or is there another aftermarket bridge that's recommended, like something with grooved saddles that was used in the 60's, and as some claim is subsequently better? The only requirement is I want it to look like the original (I HATE the way the giant BAII looks on this old bass!) and the bridge cover has to fit over it. As far as pickups go I'm pretty much ignorant when it comes to bass pups, since I'm a guitarist new to bass. My brother has a Fralin pup in his P-bass and he swears by it (but he also has a BAII bridge as well!) Again, it would be nice to be able to have a pup that would give me that 'vintage' tone (yes, I realize that 'vintage' tone is an incredibly subjective and broad term, but would love to put a bidge and pup in this bass that restores it back to they way it should sound!) I realize the bridge with the grooved saddles was used in the 60's, but have heard it was actually later staped saddles that CBS used in the 70's.
