    Hey guys, i have on order a SX Jazz bass in the vintage yellow, and i am thinking of upgrading the stock bridge when it arrives. I've never done this kind of thing befor and i'm wondering.... Will THIS bridge work with an SX Jazz? Should the mounting holes line up, etc? Thanks! -Cody :D

    It should work. SX basses have the 5 hole configuration like Fenders and take the same bridges. I have a BadAss on my SX and it lined up great.

    On a side note that Gotoh Bridge rocks. I put one on my MIJ Fender and I couldnt be happier with it. I like it much more than the BadAss.

    If I remember correctly, my SX short scale Jazz had a 7 hole bridge. I bought a Gotoh Standard bridge for it and I had to drill some holes because they didn't line up exactly. But it's not a big deal and the bridge covers the old holes anyway, so go for it.

    I put that Gotoh on my SX Fretless 62 RI. Worked great!
