    Ive more or less decided to get one of these.Looking at the pics at Warmoth the 201 appears to have only 4 screw holes as opposed to 5 on the 206.I was under the impression the 201 was a drop in replacement.My MIM J has 5 screws on the stocker.Is it just the pic or what.Would the 206 fit right on/be better.Thanks!

    Bernie, I have a Gotoh 206 that I was going to put on a project bass, and it definitely has 5 screw holes, though not in row a la Fenders. The 201 also has 5 holes, as far as I can tell from Warmoth's website photo, and looks to be a direct replacement for the Fender bridge. The advantage of the 206 is that you can string through the body if you want to, it's a bit heavier.
