    Like a good soldier I searched the forums before posting this, but didn't find an answer.

    I just installed a used Badass II bridge on the Bastard Beater.

    Set the string height and intonation, but now have a loud ground-like hum.

    I removed the BAII, looked under it and the rear Jbass copy (Essex) pup ground wire is in the right place.

    Should I grind some of the chrome from the bottom of the bridge to facilitate a better ground?

    Or what else could be wrong? The stock bridge didn't hum like the BAII.

    Thnx!
