    changing the saddles isnt going to do much for you. The magic of the Badass lies within its total weight and material that its made of. Save up the money or buy a different bridge.

    You should be able to get a Badass of eBay for around $60 incl. shipping.

    I got my Badass V for 75$ after shipping from Ebay. It did wonders for the bass.

    Gotoh makes some nice bridges at half the price of the Badass.

    I just put a Gotoh 201 bridge on my MIM Fender P. It is quite solid. I like the way the strings feel now and I think the tone is a bit beefier. I did have to shim the neck to get the action lower since the bridge is thicker than the old one. Now the action is actually lower than before. I love the switch. They are $30.00 at Warmoth.com I have a BadassII on my Geddy Lee and feel the Gotoh is just as good.
