    First, I am amazed at the quality for the amount spent. I did have to shield the PUP cavity and intonate it, but that's all!

    I first put on a spare Gotoh 201 bridge and the string spacing was a little to much (it's a 3/4 30" scale) and it did not sound as good as the stock plate bridge.

    That brought me to order a Hipshot Bent Plate bridge for my own Jazz. If I like it better, I am going to get rid of the BadassII that I just "had to have"

    I also heard a player with a vintage P-bass (tele style)-- year?, but it sounded excellent and it too had a plate bridge.

    Man, I'm really digging this new "Vintage world" and not playing my other modern bass hardly at all.......
  2. Pics or it didn't happen. :D

  5. Nice! I've been wondering about the quality of these basses. She looks good with it . :)

    I wish I could get on of those with a 34" scale. That would be rad as heck. Greetings from Athol!

    Thanks Guys! I ordered it at 5 in the morning and it got here by 3 the next day! Rondo music is right at a fedex hub, so they just had to put it on a truck. You should not be disappointed...!!:bassist:

    I put the bent plate on tonight. Can't really tell any difference yet. I am using DR Flats and they sound real thuddy anyway. The E string is wrapping around the post where it did not with the Badass II. No real problem there.
