    Howdy;
    I have a 1969 era (going by serial number, not body or neck stamp) Fender Mustang bass. It currently has a badass bridge on it, but, I have the original bridge for it, which I'd like to re-mount. I do not have the proper screws to do this. Where can I find these?
    Also, the bridge has provision for the adjustable mutes, like the early Jazz bass also had. Can one still source those as well?

    I did;
    They had me call Fender support
    Who gave me the part number for a 12 pak of 5x1" Oval head bridge mount/strap button screws, which are now on the way.

    I presume the bridge mutes are unobtanium...

    hey chef, did the badass bridge require different holes? I have a mustang bass body without a bridge.
