    They do.

    I still haven't found a five string Jazz bridge that doesn't work well. Look at new Schaller, ABM, Hipshot, Gotoh, Ken Smith, etc.

    I can't recommend one over the other. I guess I like Hipshot and ABM, haven't seen the newer Schallers, never been impressed with the BadAss II (no spacing adjustment).

    All of my Jazzes have the stock bridges.
