I have a MIJ P-bass. It's pretty good, but I'm always trying to make improvements here and there, replacing the pickup was a BIG improvement, but I'm thinking about a different bridge. I have the stocker on there now, and it's not bad, but I'm still looking. I tried a B@d@$$ II and it was awful. I like an even response across the fretboard, and I'm looking for a little help with the dead spot, and this bridge made all that stuff worse. That was with Fender Flatwounds, I'm using TI's right now. I realize the BA bridge works for some people and on some basses, but I hated it. I've looked at Hipshot's web site, and while their bridges aren't cheap, they look pretty nice. Of course, you have the option of brass or aluminum, or a "bent-plate" bridge similar to the Fender, but made of brass, and with grooves to keep the saddles aligned. I like the quick-change feature of the cast bridges, as I try different strings from time to time, and I also take my strings off to polish the bass and fretboard sometimes. The silk on my TI's is looking pretty ratty from being slid through the stock bridge holes several times. Any suggestions? I'm looking for a deep, punchy sound, and a little help with the dead spot wouldn't hurt either.
