    Welcome to TB. Heck of a nickname :D

    Leo Quan Inc. makes `em. Glen Quan has a web page -

    http://communities.msn.com/Badassbass/home.htm

    Are you lookin to replace the bridge on your Stingray?
    The Badass II mounting holes are meant to be a drop-in
    for P's or J's. For a Stingray, you may have to go with an
    original Badass...

    You can get a Badass II (online) at Mars.

    Also online, WD Music Products has `em
    in different finishes...

  3. Thanks notduane. That was helpful. Yeah I was looking for a replacement for the MM copy (Jay Turser). Hopefuly it will give it more sustain. I appreciate the info, it was more than adequate.

    That JT bridge looks similar to a MM one, IOW,
    an "original" Badass.
    No problem. Back when I was a metalhead, one o' my
    favorite bands was "Overkill" :p
     
  5. I'm wondering if there is a bridge out there that looks more like a MM bridge and can give me the improvement i'm after. If not that origional Badass will work. Does anyone know of anything else i should look into? Maybe there is a genuine Musicman replacement bridge ou there that will offer more sustain than the copy bridge.

    Jeff Berlin has been a Badass endorserfor a couple of decades. Maybe he has something to add.
