    Actually, it's the original bridge plate with Fender saddles.....which doesn't really work, since the original saddles were center mounted(string thru saddle design) and the fenders are offset.

    I couldn't find any center mounted saddles for replacement?

    Quadzilla sent the bass to me with a replacement Fender bridge plate and saddles......but it didn't allow for string thru. So I swapped bridge plates.

    Since the BAIII allows for string thru, and is approx. the same size as the original bridge....it was a no brainer.

    What's MWAH?

    :confused:

    :cool:

    I love all my other basses.
    But my P-bass is my desert island bass.
    If I could only play one play, the P-Bass, would edge out my J-Bass.
    And my 5-string, and my fretless.

    Another P-love thread, cool! :hyper:

    I started out with a P in the early '90s. Been through quite some basses since then and returned to the Precision couple of years ago.

    I will never part with this 1975 P. Love it.

    Nice BASS!

    I'd love to add the bridge cover to my P....but I actually palm mute during one of our songs.

    BADASSIII bridge installed.

    It was easy, except the string thru holes didn't line up. :mad:

    The string thru holes in the body were angled slightly....so I had to machine the BAIII to match. I just converted the ADG holes in the bridge to slots to allow for the angle.

    PITA! for sure, but it sounds good, and has more sustain overall.

    Pics to follow.

    I just love the sound of the/my precision bass. Not necessarily foresaking all other bass tones, I just like the tone...a lot.

    Yes... another p thread. I love my P, an MIM I bought it off the bay a couple of years ago as I needed a passive... thought it was going to be a POS, turned out to be one of the best basses I've ever owned...
