Why is it impossible to find these to purchase? Anyone seen one?
i feel your pain, I'm always prowling for a reasonably priced one. they pop up occasionally, but generally there isn't much call for them. in Fender's current production line, I think only the JMJ Mustang uses it, and the narrow string spacing means it's not a direct replacement for most other basses. Ultimately there just isn't enough demand to justify producing them.
That makes sense. Everyone I find is discontinued or out of stock.

Have you considered a Squier Bronco bridge?
Fender Bridge Assembly
Well that's one of the reasons I wanted either...to put on my Bronco. I Should have mentioned that.
the stock Bronco bridges are awful. I've used these on a couple of Mustang mods, mostly because they're one of the few inexpensive bridges I've found with a sub-19mm string spacing.

yeah, plus you've got to install those giant ferrules... i'll just keep it simple with some screws.
Did either of you ever have any luck finding a Musicmaster bridge?
A few years ago I ordered a 4 saddle from Buzzard's bass shop, no issues, worked great. But he later turned out to be not such a great guy and seems to be closed now.
Got another project and trying to find one myself. Both of the Musicmasters I have now have 17mm spacing so that's the key.
