    I am wondering what the difference between the Gotoh 201 and 206 bridges is. Is one string through and one top load? One a Fender drop-in and one not? One higher mass than the other and better tone? One more expensive or better? Please explain the differences between these two bridges.

    Also, the 206 allows for string-through-body setup as well.

    I installed a 201 into my MIM Jazz bass, and I must say I'm very happy with the results.

    I installed a 201 on my 77 Jazz bass and I think Gotoh makes class A stuff, Don't know much about the 206.

    the 206 takes a bit of modification to fit, but it's HUGE, string thru, and infinitely adjustable. my soon to be made jazz bass will have one. :)
