So, I decided to take the plunge, and since I'm no expert in guitar repairs, I took my Jazz into a local shop that's been recommended by some shops around. I asked them to install a BadAss II on my jazz, here's what they said: The slots on the bridge had to be cut in a way so that the strings would not form a straight line from the end of the bridge, through the bridge slot, and up to the nut. In other words, they claimed that in order to space the string correctly off the edge of the fingerboard, the string has to be pulled outward. It looks weird. Can this be correct?
