    I have been using a Badass II bridge on my jazz bass for about a year now but I have NEVER had shims cut for the strings to sit in. I find the strings stay put anyway and dont move atall. I have certainly not had problems with breaking strings.

    I was wondering what other people think and if anyone has done the same.

    Thank you all very much,

    Greetings Chris,

    There is a huge debate whether to cut the grooves for the BAII. Try a search on the topic I know there are some good answers. I recall the manufacturer recomends cutting the slots.

    Personally I haven't cut the grooves and haven't had any problems for over a year.
  3. I havent had any problems with mine, I too have not shaved any grooves for strings.
