    Has anyone with a fender bass equipped with a through-body bridge switched to a badass bridge instead? If so, how did it affect tone/intonation/string height, etc.?

    I don't see any reason why a BA would be better than having string thru. I'm no expert though. :)

    The current Badass II string-through bridge does NOT work with Fender 3 hole mounted string through bridges. The BAII string-through has 5 hole mounting.

    Word is that a new generation Badass is under development that will address this.
