    I was always under the impression that the BadAss II was a direct drop in on Fender basses. I have never owned this bridge, but I plan on getting one soon. This guy who used to work with me said that new holes have to be drilled in order for the new bridge to fit on a MIM Fender. So which is it? Is it a direct drop-in or do I have to re-drill new holes?

    I just replaced the stock bridge of my MIJ75ri with a BadassII ......and it certainly was a 'drop-in' replacement.

    I'm certain there is someone who can speak for a MIM.......I see if I can spark 'em up to give you a solid answer !!!

    I did it to my old MIM Jazz. The holes matched up perfectly.

    It was a bolt in on both my MIM J and MIM P.
