    Guys, i am putting together a franken fender. I have all the needed pieces, except the bridge. It will be a '54 blue flower.
    the body has holes for the bridge. the perfect bridge will be a 3 screws with string thru body option. i know the on ebay is possible to find the old style tele bass bridge. what i would really appreciate is to find a more modern bridge with each saddle for each string.

    so i am requesting your help, do a similar bridge exists? where can i buy one?

    for reference think to a bridge similar to the one actually used on the american P bass, but with 3 holes for screws instead of 5.

    thanks a lot!
  2. :cool: The bridges used on the American Series and American Deluxe bridge are 3-screw. The 5-screw bridges are the ones used on the MIM, MII, MIC, etc. Both of my AmStd and my AmDlx P-Basses have 3-screw bridges. The older vintage models might have 5-screw, but I'm not sure.

    I'd suggest using a Badass-II anyway.
