Question about Badass II and Fender Replacement body

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Dave, Apr 2, 2006.

  1. Ok, for my senior project, my physical product is going to be a bass that I built. What Im wanting to do is get a Fender Replacement body, like this. Would a Badass II fit this body with no modification? I have never had a Fender, or looked at parts for it. It appears that there are 5 screw-holes for the bridge. The BA II has 5 screws, so I assume that you just screw it in, but I wanted to be sure.

  2. The Badass II is a direct replacement for a stock Fender bridge.
    There might be a slight variance, so put in the middle screw first and then work your way outwards - and don't tighten them all down until they are all in! :)

    A Badass II is a direct replacement for a Fender as is a Gotoh. The Gotoh is a bit shorter than the Badass.
  4. Thanks guys.

  5. Ive been looking at pictures of BAII bridges, and I dont see any slots in the saddles for the strings to rest in. Is this just a bad pic, or do you have to do that yourself?

  6. You need to file slots yourself. Search you should find a thread floating around about it somewhere.
  7. Gotcha. Are all Gotoh bridges Fender replacements with 5 screws?

    the BA3 has slots and from what I can tell, also a direct replacement for stock Fender

    You want the Gotoh 201. It's about $30 from Warmoth.

    IMHO, I would go with the Gotoh, especially if you're uncomfortable with filing the string slots.

    Gotoh stuff is awesome. I've got a Gotoh 206, which is just a beast in itself (masswise, I guess)...
