I just installed a Badass II Bridge on my MIM Fender/Warmoth Bass. I bought this bass about 10 years ago (man I feel old). About 3 years ago I started to get a serious itch for new gear but really couldn't afford a new bass, so I opted to upgrade the stock painted alder body on my bass for a solid walnut body through warmoth. That was a huge enhancement. Now I just upgraded the bridge to a Badass II, I'm very happy with the results. I think there's definately a difference in tone, however my stock bridge was practically falling apart also. The saddles kept randomly unscrewing themselves and the springs would rattle and buzz. Now I need to look at upgrading my pickups, I play a lot of slap and tend to play in a bit of a jazzier style even though I play in a contemporary worship band that has more of a rock style to it. Any suggesting would be appreciated, btw I don't want to reroute the body, so I'll need to stay with the 2 j-pu style.
