    hi, i have a modified MIM jazz. i put one of those old pickup covers over the bridge pickup. i want to change my stock bridge but when i put on a Badass II, it is too big to have with the pickup cover. another problem w/ the badass is that the lowest it lets me set the action is not low enough for the fretless neck i replaced on it.

    basically i need a good, affordable, nearsame size as a regular fender bridge, that will give better sustain.
    any help is appreciated. thanks

    This can be fixed by shimming the neck with a few business cards.

    The Gotoh 201 should do the trick.
