    If you bought a, for example, '73 Jazz bass that came with a Badass bridge. You purchase an authentic '73 or even a '74 bridge (I don't think there is a difference) online and swap it out. Would you list that bass as "all original"?

    I would just be honest. :roflmao:
    "All Original" signifies that all the parts were present at the origin of the bass. That's no longer true.
    I would just use a couple of extra words and explain the situation. "a '1973 Jazz Bass with period-correct Fender parts."

    Well, the bass didn't come out one giant stamp machine. Fenders are 'parts' basses. You found an original bridge, then you found an original bridge.
    However the foot print left in the finish gives away that there was badass on it at one point.

    That'd be my answer too.
