    Went wild on ebay last week. I bought a rear-routed Jazz body (alder, with flame maple top) and a Warmoth Jazz neck (4 string, maple, maple board, black dots). I have a Hipshot B style bridge with the thru-body option, but I had no idea that it was so light when I won the ebay bid. Now I'm considering using a Gotoh or a Badass II instead. Of these three, which would you choose and why? If you have other suggestions,feel free to list them. Thanks for all help.

    You didn't say which Gotoh you were looking at but if it's a 207 then IMHO you are better off staying with the Hipshot. I prefer the "A" style for adjustability but the "B" style is still a good quality bridge.

    Heaviness of a bridge is meaningless, IMHO. I'd stick with the Hipshot.
