    Hello everyone, I'm in the process of replacing some electronics and rusted parts on my MIJ Fender Jazz Bass Special '86-'87 It's the kind that Duff McKagan used. I've searched the web for days but I can't find the type of bridge they used on these. It has four screw holes (with 3/4' between the center of each drillhole), I was hoping to get the same bridge in black (the original colour), but if these are no longer being made, does anybody know of good bridge to fit this bass? Oh and it's a 4-string bass. Dimensions of the original bridge run 2' and 3 1/2'.
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, I like the look of the gotoh, closest to the old one :)
    To bad about the screwholes, but hey I'm probably never going to sell this bass either (being my first AND a vintage '86 - '87 ).

    I have a '87 too. :) I think the holes aren't problem, if you really want to use it and doN't finde a 4 holes one.
    I'd change it if i'dn't have any other options.

    I have one of those black bridges. I'd consider selling it but don't know the forum rules about that. Can anybody enlighten me?

    What's wrong with your OEM bridge? Something mechanical, or just decorative?

    I have an '87 JB Special. My bridge works fine, it's just a bit flaky looking where the black is coming off.
