    I've been interested in it for quite a while and I was wondering
    if it really made a difference.


    thanks. :)

    I say yes. Heeps more sustain.

    I just installed one on my main jazz bass the other day. Big improvement.

    Personally, I don't like the BAII but you should try one and decide for yourself.
     
  6. I didn't really notice any increase in sustain on any of the 3 I installed. What I appreciate is the overall precision of the the bridge. String adjustmets can be dialed in perfectly. The un cut saddles alow me to put the strings at the exact spacing I want also.

    I won't gig a bass without one.
     
  8. It looks cool, the precision of adjustments that can be made, etc.

    It's kind of like a badge of honor to have one on your bass :cool:
     
  9. yes. got them on 4 of my 5 SX basses. more clarity, volume, presence & sustain
     
  10. a bent piece of metal as a bridge doesn't sit well with me, I'd rather have something substantial and machined with precision.

    Not really, no. They're higher quality than most bent plate bridges, but I don't think they offer any tonal improvement.

    I've owned a few over the years and I have them on my two Js. The ones I bought were both pre-cut with saddle grooves, however (both are about 15 years old). Does Badass offer the option of pre-cut or uncut grooves?

    Now they do, pjmuck.

    I personally think they're cool. And a steal used.
     
  16. the coolness factor alone should warrant the purchase.

    Marcus and Geddy use one. Just a small endorsement.
     
  18. Look at the name. Just having it makes you badass.

    LOL what are you implying Connor?
     
  20. +100

    it gives you an excuse to drop the word badass in a casual conversation about gear.
