    hey i started a jazz bass project on a sx jazz bass and decided to try out a BA2 for the first time.

    Heres the thing.. where do i make the notches?

    i know the strings are supposed to run between the two poles on the jazz pickups but when i put strings on the bridge for the first time i noticed they dont line up.. so am i supposed to move the strings over on the saddles to space them out right and then notch? or is the alignment on this sx just wrong...

  2. move them laterally to get them in between the poles (within reason) and then mark and notch.
