    Hey all,

    I've searched but could not quite find what I was looking for. I am potentially set to acquire a Squier VM Precision V and will likely be doing some of the usual mods if I get it.

    The stock bridge has a 6-hole screw pattern and I know that Hipshot makes a KickAss 5 specifically for Squier V basses (it's called mount pattern 2). It would be a great option but could add some heft at the same time. I also like the look of the Fender American Precision V bridge (see link below) which uses a 4-screw pattern. I am wondering if the 4 holes in the American bridge would line up with the inner 4 holes in the Squier VM P V body (at least close enough to work without drilling), or if it would be too offset. My gut says it's a no go, but if anyone has any first-hand knowledge I'd certainly appreciate a shout. Thanks!

    Would also be interested in any other good 5-string bridges that are known to fit the Squier hole pattern.

    I don't know about that, but have used a MIM Fender 5 string bridge on a US Peavey Foundation 5 to excellent effect, and it didn't cost much, either... I did have to fill and drill some holes, but it was no big deal - here's a pic: Peavey Hardshell Case(1).JPG

    Good to know! That's a really great-looking Foundation... I've got bad GAS for US Peavey basses, and you're not helping. :D;)
