    Does any tbers out there know if the bad@ss V bridge is a direct replacement (no drilling) for the bridge on an American Jazz V or an American Jazz V Deluxe? Thanks in advance!

    It is supposed to be a direct replacement. One thing though, if your MIA Jazz V has a string thru body as mine does, you'll be losing that feature.

    Cool...thanks for the input. Not too worried about the string through with the bad@ss. I'm sure (and hope) that the mass of the bridge makes up for the string through feature with regard to tone and sustain. Thanks again!
