    Hi there!

    My Y-Man Guitar Workshop jazz bass has got a bridge with these dimensions (it's got 5 screw-holes):

    The whole thing:
    80mm x 60mm

    From side to middle of first hole:

    Between each hole:

    - would this fit with a BadAss II Bridge?

    I do a lot of Badass installs on Fenders and Squires, and especially the 5 string Jazz Basses, I often have to relocate the holes. I've seen like 5 different sets of holes, and that's from the same maker.

    Most of the 4 strings are direct fit... but we don't know if your bass was a direct replacement.

    But the string spacing should be fine. You have to cut your own slots in the bridge, so you can adjust the spacing a bit.

    So try to see where it falls on the existing holes, and if it seems in the right location, you are all set. You just have to slot the saddles.

    If it's not, then you need to measure to find the location of the bridge to be sure, and then measure to find the center line. Then mark the location of the new holes, and drill them.

    They can be a bit tricky to install, but not too hard either.
