    Hi
    Just bought a '88 Fender Precision with maple fretboard, has anyone had any problems with these basses?

    Is it worth getting the badass bridge?

    I think the japs make great instruments, their early 80's fender vintage series was alot better than the american vintage series, i know because i owned both. I wouldnt waste my money on a bad ass bridge. It might give you a little more sustain but that will come at the cost of less punch.
     
  3. I predict that roughly 50% of your responses will say forget the BA 2 and roughly 50% will say the BA 2 is the answer to all your bass-related problems. :bag:

    I'm one of the 50% that says forget the BA.

    I have two MIJ Ps. Very well built basses.

    I have never had problems with the bridge, so *I* wouldn't bother changing it. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! I also think the badass spoils the vintage look of the Ps, but that is just my opinion.
