I'm sure this has been asked, or a variation of it many times. I'm looking for a replacement bridge for my American Special Jazz bass. I've tried a couple after markets on it, but since they tend to have really thick bass plates, I've always ended up shimming the neck to get the string height back to an acceptable level. I've a highshot, a gotoh, and the vintage bridge with threaded saddles. My favorite bridges are the ones on American standards and american pro's but they are the 3 screw pattern and the American Special uses the 5 bolt pattern. Seem to be the best combination of stability and adjustability. I liked the ability to adjust string spacing on the vintage threaded bridge, but it always kinda felt unstable. I guess summary I'm looking for something with threaded style saddles (even if they are just the 3 grove ones like on the American Standard, but with groves cut into the bass plate to give a more solid feel. I would prefer one with a thinner bass plate so I can avoid shimming the neck if possible. Not really into the super-massive high mass deals either. Any ideas?
