    The Badass2 bridge is a very popular replacement for upgrading P and J basses. I would check it out- do a search. :D

    I think Badass bridges are kinda obsolete, the times when the Badass was the only aftermarket bridge are over.

    I prefer the ETS Tuning Fork (you see them on the Marleaux's for example), the ABM Tuning Fork is good too.

    The Schaller Roller bridge is a classic, too. I have it on my Mr. Bassman, and it works great.

    Check out the Gotoh 201 too.........1/2 the price of the Badass and reportedly as good.
