Hey guys, I play a 2008 Fender Precision Bass (American Standard) and I've also got a Badass II bridge that has been lying around for a while. I've used it previously on an early '90's Mexican Fender Jazz Bass with great results, and I've always been very fond of Badass bridges. The problem is that the American Standard basses all seem to be string-through-body (unfortunately), which to me is a totally useless feature that I hate, and the new style bridge that allows for mounting strings either way is mounted so that it doesn't allow the Badass to be a direct replacement. But hey, I paid $400 (Canadian) for the bass brand new with tags, hard case and equipment, so I can't complain much! I spoke to a guitar tech about mounting the new bridge and setting it (and the neck, too) up for my favorite strings - Rotosound RS66LF's. He told me that he would have to hammer in some wooden pegs to fill the old mounting holes, in order to drill new ones for the Badass. I'm unfamiliar with this technique. Also, honestly, I kind of shivered at the thought of someone hammering pieces of wood into holes in my beloved bass's body. I decided to see what TalkBass has to say about this. Anybody familiar with this technique, or maybe there's another way that I might suggest to my tech? I'm also concerned as to whether this would affect the resonance of the body. Help!
