Another question about BadAss bridges

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by Gimli, Dec 16, 2001.

  1. I have a Jazz Bass copy and its bridge is in pretty bad shape. I'm thinking of replacing it and would like to get a bridge that will be as unintrusive as possible (I don't like the idea of routing the body). So I was thinking of getting a BadAss II and I've read quite a bit about it (including several posts her -- very helpful [thanks]). The only think I'm a little unsure about at present is that a lot of people have noted that the saddles (being uncut) have to have grooves filed into them. Is this absolutely necessary or is it just an improvement? Otherwise I'm completely ready to buy this bridge (even if there is some slight woodwork involved (i.e. drill holes don't match up)). I'd also like to ask if there are any other bridges available that are "drop-in" jobs like this one.
